Can you please post your polynomial file (including mfbr/a, a/rlambda) - I want to do some benchmarks on my PC (running on 32-bit Windows XP) to see if it would fit in 1 GB or if it needs more.

(BTW: my office box where I used to run my ranges in your factoring projects has got 1 GB RAM, so running 16e will be almost certainly too much if I am present and want to use word, excel, etc., but I will be out of office for ~2 weeks in the beginning of march and therfore can possibly run a small range with 16e in the meantime - iff it fits into 1 GB.)
