Hi all,

I have got a message:

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [hash size=60000].

so I tried to increase extra_hash = 100000  (or 70000), refresh format 
(not sure if needed), but obtain the same error message.

I have several questions and suggestions:

1. Is 'extra_hash' the proper variable?

2. Is possible that my binary (pdfeTeX 3.141592-1.21b-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.4) 
kpathsea version 3.5.4 from Akira) has extra_hash=50000 as maximum?

3. Sometimes the error message variable name differs from variable name 
that should be set. It is confusing, one is not sure if the proper 
variable is set. Could it be unified? Or Might be add more info like

! TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [hash size=60000, set extra_hash up to
