Although Matthew is right in principle, your the error message points
to the memory area called the "heap".  There is some information
in the manual to explain the different areas:
http://eclipse-clp.org/doc/userman/umsroot122.html#toc145

The heap is used for "nonlogical" storage, e.g. compiled
or asserted code, collection of results in findall/3 etc.
Are you maybe repeatedly compiling large generated chunks of code?
