On the page that Martin was referring to i.e http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/win/winmemory.html
It says..

Stata 10's new Graph Editor uses the gdiplus.dll from Microsoft. Because of the base address Microsoft chooses for this dll, the memory space that is available to Stata 10 is fragmented. This causes the largest continuous memory block that you can allocate to Stata 10 to be about 200 MB less than Stata 9. We have contacted Microsoft to see if they can fix this problem. 

Wonder if this is still be a problem in stata 11.

If you have 32 bit XP, more than 3 GB won't improve matters. Get a 64  bit 
machine (and 64 bit Stata/64 bit OS) and you break free from these 
constraints...
