Ironically, this happened to a buddy of mine this weekend, and he was in a
situation where he couldn't reload for several hours and really needed to
change the running config...so, I did a couple of searches to see if I
could figure anything out for him, and I came across a post by Jared Mauch
on the cisco list (this question would have been better asked there in the
first place) that suggested doing a "clear ip route *". Sure enough, that
cleared up the memory logjam and access to the running-config was
restored.
