It all started when I was getting a new project from the svn server.

It didn't really work, so I ran designer from a shell

../StartDesigner.sh
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gnomebreakpad": libgnomebreakpad.so:

Error getting children of item UAMETA from provider:
com.novell.prov.pal.internal.vc.ProvVersionControl ContentProvider@18dae1

What I see here is "Out of memory" and "Error getting children of item
UAMETA from provider:"

The memory settings in Designer.ini is:

-Xms2048m
-Xmx2048m
-XX:MaxPermSize=1024m

I would like to increase this. But I cannot figure out to do that. I have
tried to point to a different java (the system one), but that just makes
designer not start.

Is it possible to get designer to use more than 2GB memory?
