If you have a link to the 4.5 MB file I'm sure someone with an iLiad will test it for you (I am holding out for the new big battery version). It is my understanding that FBReader reads the entire document into memory, so the important time may be how long it takes to open. I have never heard of anyone running out of memory when using FBReader, but a 80+ MB Plucker file might well do so.
