    Hi Jack,

    please restart beaTunes and check in the Preferences (Edit menu), subtab Analysis, what the number of analysis tasks is set to. You might want to reduce that to 2, if it's higher than 2.

    After multiple restarts and a computer reboot, I looked at the Task Queue and noticed it was trying to Analyze 3 files of an Audio Book which were an hour and 16 min each. When it got past those the problem went away. I have tried to remove my audio books from the Analysis process. This makes sense to me as to why Java ran out of memory, which isn't really your problem anyway. I was trying to have it Analyze my entire Library. I have removed the audio books and podcast from the process, and have not had a repeat of the fatal error.
    Thank you for your attention to my problem and swift response.

    Cool - yeah - that's possible that that was the reason.
