It would be nice if something were done about the cute 
"gleep! out of bit blocks" message.  This message is unintelligible 
to us all wrt the state it is trying to convey and its seriousness. 
E.g., can a MACSYMA be reasonably continued after the user receives 
this message?  Can it happen when (STATUS MEMFREE) is not 0?
And exactly what does it mean as far as the functioning of the GC 
or whatever?

I sent the above message almost a year ago but have gotten no response.
The "gleep" message is still confusing MACSYMA users.  Guy, if we 
appended an "Out of core" line or some such that would help.  What 
do you think?
