MMap ran out of room

I had been installing Debian mixture of stable and testing (needed kernel modules for nic and video that weren't in stable) on a machine before Christmas. I am using the kernel-image 2.4.22-1-686 package from testing. Everything was working before I left for the holiday. Now that I am back and want to get this machine fully ready to use, I ran the 'apt-get update' command and got the following error message:

Reading Package Lists... Error!
E: Dynamic MMap ran out of room
E: Error occured while processing acl-alisp8 (NewVersion1)
E: Problem with MergeList /var/lib/apt/lists/http.us.debian.org_debian_dists_testing_contrib_binary-i386_Packages
E: The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened.

In checking /var/log/messages I also see the following. I don't know if they are related.

kernel: mtrr: base(0xf0000000) is not aligned on a size(0x280000) boundary


kernel: Memory: 1013288k/1031360k available (1185k kernel code, 17684k reserved, 448k data, 112k init, 113856k highmem)

'free' gives the following output.

            total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       1016908     357996     658912          0      95704     143232

Swap:       996020          0     996020

My /etc/apt/sources.list contains the 7 cd's for Woody 3.0r1 plus these lines:

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian stable main contrib non-free
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian testing main contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ stable/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free

The machine was replicated from a twin machine using jablicator. The other machine is not having this problem.

Any help resolving this problem would be appreciated.
