Hello Karl,

Thats ok! We have three workarounds, increase memory, switch to 
14webmac.tex, apply the changes suggested by Joachim, for which I am 
very thankful.

Still I'd like to know the cause. The redefinition of \N in tex.web 
might conflict with the changes in webmac.tex.
Why was webmac changed? To the user the difference doesn't seem to be 
visible, aside the crash.
