Once again those discussion lists proved invaluable. Thanks to everybody to
In a nutshell, there were 2 proposals:
1. To try boot -as and force the system not to read /etc/systems (therefore
avoiding the forceload statements introduced there by Veritas installer.
This did not work..
2. introduce "set kobj_map_space_len=0x200000" (The default was 0x100000). I
actually put there 0x400000, as somebody else suggested  and voila, the
problem was gone.

Tnx. again !!
