Matlab 7.1 (R14SP3) bug : “Maximum variable size allowed by the program is exceeded”

After upgrading to SP3, my Matlab codes simply stopped working. By looking into the error, I found out that it is a bug that existed in version 6 but was later fixed in version 7 (sp1, sp2).

Exact Steps and Code to Reproduce Bug:
test = zeros([402653185,1],'uint8');
% It worked if you change to 402653184

Error Messages:
??? Error using ==> zeros
Maximum variable size allowed by the program is exceeded.

Anyway, the Matlab support team gave me a workaround: create two matrix of smaller sizes and concat them together.
test1 = zeros([3e8,1],'uint8');
test = [test1 ; test1];
clear test1;

For me, I don’t want to modify all my codes, so I had to revert back to R14SP2. Hopefully the next version of Matlab could fix this bug.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I wonder wtehher the Arrow one underneath the B&W Chainring with River, with the CBDBUG in the middle but without the web addresses around the circumference, would work?But if not, the Chainring would look great as letterhead and as the basis of a jersey design.
