As far as I know Coda keeps a in memory-copy of the complete RVM partition.
Correct me if I'm wrong: After rdsinit zeroed the data partition, the
rds_zap_heap is used to create a segment/heap stucture on the new RVM
partition and thereby also needs a lot of memory.

So may it be, that you have too less RAM/Swap for a 315M Partition? 
Watch a "top" or /proc/meminfo while initialising the RVM and see what

And here my question to that : Can i get rid of codasrv wasting that lot
of Memory?
