Binary package hint: mit-scheme

On noticing that MIT-Scheme wouldn't launch from the applications I ran 'mit-scheme --edit' on the command line and received an error stating the 'Largest address does not fit in datum field of object.
Allocate less space or re-configure without HEAP_IN_LOW_MEMORY.'

I expected an emacs-like X-Window to open so that I could hack me some Scheme.

Instead my computer did nothing. It was sad. A brief google returned little on the problem and passing the argument '--heap 250' or even '--heap 10' did nothing at all. I also tested the upstream Debian Unstable package with no luck, done a purge reinstall, and will soon try the Gutsy and Etch builds.
