For some reason ImageJ1 cannot allocate more than about 1.5 GB of memory on 32-bit systems

@bnorthan I guess the IJ launcher is being too aggressive when it guesses how much RAM to allocate to Java. Some 32-bit systems max out as low as 1.3GB in my experience. :-(
The JavaFX launcher will behave differently so we can fix the problem as part of that work.

@ctrueden, @rimadoma thanks. I'm not sure what it uses for the initial guess, or how that works. I did not see a ImageJ.cfg file in the fresh installation... but as soon as I added one, and set the max memory to 1000m it worked fine.
