Further experimentation shows a change in behavior if I remove the 
"[\hline]" command from the "\rowcolors" command.

If this is present, I get the "capacity exceeded" error.

If I remove it (using "\rowcolors{1}{green!25}{green!{25}" instead), I 
get the message "Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr", pointing 
to the "header" preceding the "\endfirsthead" command.

What that means, of course, is beyond me.

In addition, I found that (following hints from off-list) that changing 
the TLchunksize to 1 and the input stack to 20000 had no effect on the 
"Capacity exceeded" problem.

Thanks for all your help.
