aka it is trying to use >2gig RAM and there is not enough memory.
Possibly because you are not using a 64bit OS, and possibly because
you don't actually have that much memory in your computer.
Maybe try on a smaller dataset?

you will have to wait for someone to build GRASS 6.4.0RC6 for Cygwin.
i.class uses UNIX-style Xmonitors which are not available on standard
