Lisp heap vs. Mac heap

I am having what appears to be a problem with memory allocation. My program
uses several GWorld offscreen bitmaps (700 x 500 pixels, 1 bit depth).
Most of the time when the program tries to allocate these bitmaps (BTW, using
"oodles of utils" to do the allocation), everything works fine. Sometimes,
for no reason, I get a mysterious "Error -108" which I cannot find in any
of the manuals.
Memory is not a problem. I am running MCL with a 19 Meg memory partition
(of which, my program actually uses about 5 megs). However, it seems as
though MCL has a problem transferring free memory from the Lisp heap to
the Mac heap when I attempt to allocate the bitmaps. Is there any way to
control the sizes of the Lisp/Mac heaps so that this problem does not occur?
Thanks in advance,
