[fpc-pascal] Find error?

Thanks David, Pete amd Florian,

When I try Peter's advice, I get 

(gdb) info line 0x08071049^
Function "0x08071049" not defined.

I found the section of the FPC User's Manual that talks about gdb and
I assumed that I hadn't used the '-g' option ... but now I'm
wondering if '-gl' should allow gdb debugging?  The docs on gdb seem
pretty volumnous but I didn't see 'info' as a command...

Regarding the EOutOfMemory exception, is that thrown only when all
(physical+virtual) memory is exhausted?  Or is it also possible to
try to allocate too big a chunk (say, a chunk that exceeds physical
but not physical+virtual)?  I'm running FC1 with the 2.4 kernel
(although I may upgrade to FC2 with the 2.6 kernel).
