    Works fine but there was a bug in versions before 3.5 that caused out of memory errors.

    Nope, as reported on this forum, that bug seems to have been squashed.

    The bug is gone in 3.5.  There is also a workaround in versions before 3.5.  From a previous post:

    Here's another work around:

    Start the MC software with your display settings at 1920 x 1200.

    Make sure the various tools that you use such as mix tool and audio suite are open.

    Change the display settings to 2560 x 1600.  Now you can use the 30" monitor as it was intended and, as far as I can tell, the memory issues don't seem to occur.  

    I've only used this work around for a day, but so far, all's well.  The memory usage seems to function normally as long as the software is started with the 1920 x 1200 setting.
