problems with jython

When during jython startup the sys-package-manager encounters
a jar that it has not seen before on the class path, it will process
the jar so you can easily import from it in jython.
For large jars this may require more memory than java has 
available, which seems to be the problem causing the SIGSEGV.
Just retry with more memory allocated to the JVM.
Type 'java -h' to find out how to do this.
