The error turned out to be that we were running out of RAM because we had 
the _RamSize variable set to it's default, which I believe is 7M and we 
actually have much more.  Apparently,  The ram used by the rest of the 
application grew enough that the size we had set the _HeapSize variable to 
exceeded the remaining ram, hence the error.

Thanks for the hint on interpreting the error as ASCII.
