Default P-1 factoring Q&A thread

After completing the P-1 test, the program started testing for GCD. I got this result:

Stage 1 GCD complete. Time: 492.051 sec.
Not enough memory available to run stage 2 now.
Will try again at a later time.
Starting Primality test of M[...]
And then it went ahead and started doing the Lucas-Lehmer testing. I have reserved 32 of 256 MB of memory for Prime95 during the day. How much should I increase it by so I won't see this error again? Also, when will stage 2 of the GCD test commence?
