That may be the case, but you haven't proven it yet. Try inspecting the 
application with a memory profiler and find out where the memory is 
really going. Also print the stack trace from the error. Until you do 
that, all you have is an educated guess at best. These sorts of problems 
are rarely what you think they are at first.
