  Well, it is actually fairly hard to make Allegro CL use more than
  about 400M of old-space memory if you want reasonable new-space
  performance, even when using very strong words to drive home the
  point in a machine with more than enough physical memory and 4G of
  swap space just for kicks.  I have seen ACL give up the proverbial
  ghost fighting battles with memory beyond 512M, which coincides with
  the fixnum capacity.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
