Do you really have so much free memory available? If you tell
Java it should use 7.5GB heap space, it will use that, even if not
available, and fail. I run Java with 4GB heap space (machine had more),
but since other processes allocated memory, too, it did fail sometimes
with similar symptoms. After I reduced the memory to 2.5 GB heap space,
it runs fine.
