> When you say you ``just updated my TeX Live collection'' are you talking about updating TeX Live 2013 by manually installing an updated version of beamer or are you using TeX Live 2014 pretest and simply updated with TeX Live Utility (tlmgr) to the current version? Doing the former is always a touchy thing because other, interdependent updates may have to be made at the same time (no, I don't know what they might be). With my up to date TeX Live 2014 pretest using its supplied beamer 3.33 I have no problems typesetting a beamer document. You mention xy but that might, in turn, depend upon other things so...
Sorry, I should have said "I updated my TexLive 2013 installation" (which not totally up to date...) with TexLive Utility. The problem clearly arises with xy; typesetting a beamer file without xy raises no problem. The surprise was that just with beamer 3.32 it did not happen.
As to Victor Ivrii's suggestion
yes, this solves the problem, and further puzzles me, because, like Herb, I thought the present versions of TeX were actually etex... but now I recall a similar memory problem (not with beamer) a colleague had when editing a book, and which was solved also by loading etex...
Any ideas on this last issue ?
