It's not stored in the log. It's stored in your user prefs. Prefs are
stored in the prefs directory, which itself is in the same directory
as the errorLog. Instructions for finding the errorLog are here:


Each file in the prefs directory corresponds to a module. There will
be a line inside the file which has "maximumHeap=" on it. You could
either change the value on that line or just delete the prefs file for
the module (if you don't have any other prefs you care about keeping,
since it will be recreated the next time you load the module).
