Bug 481687 seems to be another case of the same problem. Feel free to mark this one as a duplicate, as long as there is a fix in the works. :-)
Comment 3 P. A. López-Valencia 2009-04-06 11:11:48 EDT still fails with the same error. The probable difference with the problem fixed reports in bug 481687 is that my laptop has 4Gb or physical RAM, therefore PAE does kick on the hardware.
