Could be Maarten Sneep's and Ross Moore's pointers are more appropriate 
than my first idea! Wouldn't you like to change extra_mem_bot to at 
least 1,000,000? What puzzles me is that Maarten states

extra_mem_top = 2000000     % extra high memory for chars, tokens, etc.
extra_mem_bot = 4000000     % extra low memory for boxes, glue, 
breakpoints, etc.

and Ross cites

extra_mem_bot    =        0 % extra high memory for chars, tokens, etc.
extra_mem_top    =  2000000 % extra low memory for boxes, glue, 
breakpoints, etc.

Trial *and* error still *the* method in academic research?

OTOH: did you see in short documents already any change in math 
formulae or areas when applying microtypography to weird encodings like 
those from the 'U' type? Don't you need some more settings and 
definitions in microtype.cfg? Which might lead to the error you get ...
