Thanks - I feared as much.

Seems there are two problems here - the default WP_MEMORY_LIMIT
of 32MB, which seems should be increased for 3.4, and stingy shared
hosts that set a physical limit of 32MB.

I will propose increasing the WP 32MB limit elsewhere, but theme
related: Would it be appropriate for a theme that knows it has issues
at 32MB to try to bump the memory limit itself, or is that really out
of the scope of what a theme should be doing?
