By running darcs record with this parameter I was able to apply initial patch
for the fresh repo - it's around 1.9MB gz file.

Without +RTS .. I got the same error as reported. (Bear in mind that I'm
running Win98 under win4lin and does not waste too much memory for it - 48MBs
although win4lin nicely uses Linux cache - with this setup I can run Adobe

I also re-created repo with the same data under Linux and it works.
When I added binary file (problematic one - *.site) to repo, darcs was using
about 80% (of 256MBs) of my memory.

However, operation of adding (binary file), recording, removing & recording
was successful.

Interesting enough, when (before that) I was testing old repo (which was 
crashing under win32), by running darcs (from Linux) on the same win32 repo I
got interesting report:

bash-2.05b$ darcs check
Looks like we have a difference...
Inconsistent repo!

So, it looks like giving darcs on win32 more resources solves the problem.

More testing tomorrow (actually, it's already today :-)
