well, it is always a good bet to start with a small subset of your
data.  Increase it and take a look what happens and how much memory it
takes (object.size() should give the size of the oject in memory, use
OS-tools to check the size of the whole process).

There may also be some OS-related issues.  There are some issues with
memory management under Windows, in particular the memory may become
fragmented.  Try the same under UNIX if you have access to.

And last -- please describe more precisely what exactly are you doing
and what does your data look like.

Best wishes,
