Jade was dying on me today with a out of memory error in tex (whilst formatting my DocBook).

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [grouping levels=255].

The answer as stated in an email, was to increase the pool size in /usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf and then run ‘fmtutil –all’, which didn’t work for me. There is some suggestion that it might be caused by an out of date DSSSL stylesheet, I don’t want to lose my modifications to
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-0.6.9/docbook-utils.dsl however. The install instructions for the new DSSSL stylesheets are also not very helpful — this is going to need more research.
