I saw this problem on my PPC Mac Mini as well; what I did (if
memory serves), was to increase the data segment limit to 768M.
It can probably be argued that failing in this way is a bug, and
that bumping into the data segment resource limit should elicit
a better error message.
As for the other problems you mention, I'm sorry that I don't
have a suggestion for the root cause of the problem.
