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  
under control.

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 ...
