This happens rather frequently to me too and I have 2GB of RAM. I  
have noticed that it tends to happen as it is trying to preview a  
large document immediately after typesetting is complete. Re-opening  
the document after the crash always properly displays the document.  
Anyway, I reported this to Dick Koch several weeks ago (along with  
crash reports), so I know that he is aware of the problem. Of course,  
more people reporting it may also move it up his priority list. :-)
