|Recurrent OutOfMemoryError during Eclipse publish operation to server [message #226716]

I've created a test server using my Tomcat installation and
provide these VM args in my launch configuration -Xms512m -Xmx768m
-XX:PermSize=256m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m. Whenever I publish a web project
to it I get the following error:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.jobs 4 2 2008-12-17 14:32:52.110
!MESSAGE An internal error occurred during: "Publishing to Tomcat v6.0
Server at localhost...".
java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Requested array size exceeds VM limit
at org.eclipse.wst.server.core.internal.Server.doPublish(Server .java:886)
at org.eclipse.wst.server.core.internal.Server.publish(Server.j ava:874)
This does *not* happen the first few times I run a project after creating
the server, but pops up after a small number of server/eclipse
start/stops. Once it starts, it will not go away until I delete the server
and re-create it. Restarting my desktop or eclipse has not effect - the
error still comes immediately I try to start the server again.
I can continue to recreate my server on a regular basis, but it is a pain
and I'd really really like to know how I can fix it. I've looked for
other threads on the topic and any I've found have resorted to the delete
/ recreate approach.
I'm using Tomcat 6.0.18, Eclipse 3.3.2 and JDK 1.5.0_14 on Windows XP
Professional 2002 SP 3 with 2GB memory.
Any help gratefully appreciated,

My comment about WTP 2.0.3 was based on CVS code tags. This bug was
intended to be fixed in 2.0.3. However, inspection of my WTP 2.0.3,
obtained from downloaded zip, shows the same org.eclipse.wst.server.core
plug-in as WTP 2.0.2 (i.e.
org.eclipse.wst.server.core_1.0.206.v20080108b.jar). So it appears this
bug fix missed actually getting into WTP 2.0.3. If you have or can add
the WST SDK 2.0.3 to your current or a separate Eclipse 3.3.x, this bug
is easy to patch (i.e. there are a number of steps, but each is simple
