...maybe it's just too big. I know, I know... split task in smaller
working packages, right? Seems not. Reprojecting the tiles one-by-one
still gives _some_ errors like:

Allocating memory and reading input map...
WARNING: map [ASTGTM_N41E025_dem] - unable to write row 0
ERROR: Failed writing raster map <ASTGTM_N41E025_dem> row 0

If I raise the resolution of the target location to 90m, then there is
no problem. I assume that this is an error related with disk-space,
memory, etc., right? I have lot of free disk-space and 4GB RAM. Any
other suspect elements here?
