...though the original poster said his app *wasn't deployed*.

A fresh install of 5.5.17 with *no* contexts other than the manager --
started up with default script -- starts with:

Free memory: 1.40 MB Total memory: 4.93 MB Max memory: 63.56 MB

I doubt anyone will get much of an application to run in that available free
space. Hence my suggestion that the 64Mb default is pretty useless  :-)
