The limit isn't set by PLT Scheme but by your shell and / or operating
system.  Try to increase the data size limit for the process.  See
'limit' or 'ulimit' in your shell's manual page.  If that's still not
enough, try to increase the data size limit for the user, which is set
at login time.  See /etc/login.something-or-other or
/etc/security/limits.conf (or whatever it is called on your operating
system...) and the related manual pages.
