I had a strange problem while importing a new po file in drupal 4.6.4/5.
Finally, I found the solution [3] : memory_limit should be higher than 8Mb.

The module causing seems to be locale. As it is in drupal core,
I think the "System requirements" page [1] should be updated, because
the next line isnt really true in my eyes:

	"php memory of 8MB for a Drupal core install."

I know there is another web page [2] telling sometimes drupal needs more
PHP memory, but I fear the exception had become the rule.

What do you think ? On one side, a 12Mb requirement may scare users,
but on the other side, it would help users to avoid problems.


[1] System requirements

[2] My admin > modules page is blank

[3] Locale doesn't work for me
