ReOrg 3.11 exhibits a very rare bug that prevents it from working on
partitions made of an exact multiple of 65536 blocks. The bug causes ReOrg
to call AllocVec() with a size of 0 bytes, which does of course fail, which
in turn causes the operation to abort with a "not enough memory" error,
even if you have plenty of available memory.

Holger Kruse (the author of ReOrg) is now aware of this problem, and he
allowed me to distribute this patch until he will have it fixed. When?
Don't ask me...

The patch can be applied with SAS/C's 'SPatch' utility (included). Just
extract all files in the same place as `ReOrg' (make sure you already
installed the 3.1 -> 3.11 patch) and execute the `patchReOrg' script.

I know, these instructions aren't fit for inexperienced users.
