I might be wrong, but I think that this message is incorrect. It states 
the current main memory size, but not the one that is in effect.

You need to set these memory settings and then dump the metapost format. 
These settings are used in the next run (with the new format).


(this is to the best of my knowledge)
Thanks Patrick, I'll try to increase those settings and dump
a new .mem file.

All the best
