If you're doing GP, out of memory errors will be common: GP
individuals bloat unless you use one of many techniques to keep them
In this case, you need to increase the heap size. Here we increase
it to 500M:
java -Xmx500M ec.Evolve ...
If you're doing something *other* than GP, sure, it could be a leak
of some sort; though ECJ hasn't historically had many leaks -- hash
table overfills etc ...
