I suspected that you might be using Windows, as I think I have seen that 
limit with Windows before, which seems to be a lot lower than the other 
32 bit OSs.

We don't have a 64 bit version of ECLiPSe for the current release (6.0), 
but we do have the 64 bit version for the development branch of ECLiPSe 
(6.1). This is not available via the file releases at Sourceforge; you 
need to go to the download sites for our daily builds to get this. The 
development branch is pre-release, but as long as you do not use the new 
features (except 64 bit Windows, of course), I would not expect there to 
be any problems. You should go to:

http://eclipseclp.org/download.html

and select one of the distribution site under latest builds, and then 
select the Dev directory (for the development branch), and then pick the 
latest build there.

If the items in your matrix are actually equations, which are almost 
certainly structures, then I guess it is possible for you to run out of 
stack space with the default settings.
