If tetex-bin >= 1.0.7+20011202-5.1 then it might help you 
to add /etc/texmf/texmf.d/90boot (or something appropriate 
name) which containes the line

pool_size = 500000

(or similar) and run update-texmf.

Sorry if the problem is completely different from what I guessed.

Best regards,			2002.4.22.
