You and I must be the only two people who still have only 32M of RAM :)

The problem here is that the recovery fails to allocate a big chunk of
RAM it requests when recovering a filesystem with a non-empty log. This
means that the first mount of a new filesystem is ok, the first mount
after running xfs_repair is ok, but all others fail.

The development release has a work-around for this problem which should
get you going - unfortunately it didn't quite make it into the beta release.
