I've recently faced the case where the page breaker (or so it seems)
actually does not finish its job. That was with a ~100-score book, on a
machine with 3Gbytes of RAM, with LilyPond 2.11.23. After the last
"Preprocessing graphical objects...", the lilypond process uses ~1Gbyte
of memory, then slowly increases up to using all the memory available,
wthout finishing.
