Apparently not, or this is one of the parameters that is already at  
its max.

_if_ that is the right parameter, that should settle it. Big _if_  
though, because I do not see this parameter in the standard  
configuration file.

NO! this one will be irretrievably overwritten on a i-Installer rerun  
(an update or so). The other file will be replaced as well, but the  
copy you altered will be kept as a backup. The file you should alter  
overrides the other one.

The reason that I mention this /usr/local/teTeX/share/texmf/web2c/ 
texmf.cnf file is that all possible parameters are listed there with  
comments and allowed limits.

What is the exact error you get? Do you get an error from TeX itself?  
(this is before the piece you posted in the previous mail).
