Fat clients are no different in RAM requirements than regular machines.

 From https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Installation/SystemRequirements:
 > 1 GiB RAM (system memory)

To prevent crashes, you can can define a big network swap by putting
in your /etc/ltsp/nbdswapd.conf, but of course your 512 MB RAM clients 
will still go slow if they use a lot of network swap.

Try creating an LXDE chroot or switch to using localapps instead of full 
fat sessions.
Or put more RAM to your clients.
