Wikibooks PDF error message

I am using Firefox 3.6.10 on XP.
In WikiBooks, I tried to create a PDF from the Linear Algebra topic
It crashed at 24.65%, in "Combining Subspaces".
It crashed at the same spot twice, so I do not suspect a one-time glitch.
The entire error message is attached.

I haven't tried creating a PDF from a topic before, so I just selected the Linear Algebra category in the collection maker and tried creating a PDF of that.  Right now it is sitting at

  Progress: 0.00% Status: data fetched. waiting for render process..

If there is a way to get the PDF of the topic that I'm not aware of (I'm really not familar with Wikibooks, so it might be staring me in the face), let me know and I'll try it.

Also, could you try this now that we've pushed 1.17 to Wikibooks?

Some browsers etc, it will refresh and update. Seems to vary between wikis, browsers, and randomness

Refresh the page will update the progress

I believe there was a temporary problem which is now fixed: rendering "Combining Subspaces" is no problem. However it still is problematic to render huge collections: I tried rendering http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikibooks:Collections/Linear_Algebra with no success. The reason is the enormous time that is needed to generate a PDF from that collection. At some point the collection extension cancels rendering because it takes too long. The example above renders slowly because of the many formulas it contains. On my local development machine (which is faster than the wikipedia render servers)  rendering the above collection took roughly 25 minutes. Therefore I would suggest splitting such large collections into logical parts.

I am closing this since the original problem has been fixed
