Hi Even, you have right.
It is not really a crash with closing of the putty console (it
happened for another distinct and indipendent error), but
it is an error reported in the console.
AFAIK The error reported is effectively due to a memory error.

This is the error reported me:

0Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 523, in <module>
  File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 512, in main
    fi.copy_into( t_fh, band, t_band, nodata )
  File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 253, in copy_into
    nodata_arg )
  File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 71, in raster_copy
    m_band )
  File "/usr/local/bin/gdal_merge.py", line 110, in raster_copy_with_mask
    data_dst = t_band.ReadAsArray( t_xoff, t_yoff, t_xsize, t_ysize )
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/GDAL-2.0.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/osgeo/gdal.py",
line 1302, in ReadAsArray
    callback_data = callback_data)
  File "/usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/GDAL-2.0.0-py2.7-linux-x86_64.egg/osgeo/gdal_array.py",
line 325, in BandReadAsArray
    buf_obj = numpy.empty([buf_ysize,buf_xsize], dtype = typecode)

Now I try to use the gdal_warp to merge these rasters.

Thx again.
