If your client is running Tiger then it is obviously an older machine. Has she checked how much memory she is using? When were the maintenance scripts last run? Has she run the disc utility?

The key to troubleshooting anything is to start with the simplest possible causes and work your way up, not visa versa.

Many applications, and I mean many applications, only looked at total RAM installed on the machine and not how much was available to use. Noteworthy exceptions were Photoshop which used a dirty hack to find how much RAM was being used in the background.

Of course, just rebooting could clear the emulated MMU.
