Problem after installation.

I have downloaded and installed the sygwin32 program. During
installation everything went fine and I even succeeded to compile
and run a simple program. After that I tried to do tar -xzf
some_file.tar.gz and got this error message:

(C:\GCC\H-I386-CYGWIN32\BIN\TAR.EXE 1001) forkee heap_init:
unable to allocate heap, win32 error 8
cygwin: terminating
fork_helper: child died before initialization with win32 error 1
tar: Cannot fork: No more processes

During the installation I followed exactly all instractions in
faq. I have all /tmp and /bin mounted properly and all
environment variables set:
set GCC_EXEC_PREFIX=c:\gcc\H-i386-cygwin32\lib\gcc-lib\
set path=c:\windows;d:\batch;c:\gcc\H-i386-cygwin32\bin;c:\gcc\tcl\bin
set tcl_library=c:/gcc/tcl/lib/tcl7.6
set GDBTK=c:/gcc/share/gdbtcl

I will so much appriciate, if somebody can tell me, what I did
wrong. The same error message I get when I try to run anything
under bash. Under I can run one single utility.
  Thanks a lot.  Igor.
