[aprssig] Out of memory

Thanks Earl.  I remember there being a memory.txt or config.txt file that
had such settings but neither of those files are showing in my WinAPRS
directory.  The only .txt files in the root WinAPRS directory are
altpath.txt and aprsserv.txt.  Maybe one of the Sprouls will jump in here.
I thought the file was already part of WinAPRS but I'll try adding it and
see what happens.

memory.txt or config.txt

Either file name can be used. It will look for config.txt first, then look
for memory.txt. Only one will be read. Since users need to be able to
configure the amount of memory being allocated for station lists etc, before
the program is launched and even if they are not registered, a separate
config file is set up for this purpose. It is memory.txt. It must be located
in the same directory as the WinAPRS.exe application. It can contain the
following commands. Use a single TAB to separate the command and the

*	STATIONS n - this tells it how many stations to allocate 
*	MESSAGES n - this tells it how many messages to allocate 
*	PKTBUFFER n - how much memory to allocate for the packet buffer
(8192 minimum) 
*	DESTROYICONS YES/NO - this is for WinAPRS ONLY and is to help debug
memory problems. 
*	Version 2.4.0 and 2.4.1 did not destroy icons, version 2.4.2 did.
This will allow users to change the setting so that we can figure out what
works and what does not. 

If the memory.txt file is not present, it will default to the normal station
counts that it did in version 2.4.2.
