Dang. :-( 

And of course I understand far too little about the internals to have
any idea of what could be causing this. I don't see anything like an
exaggerated memory footprint when I run it on my system (2.12.3 on
Ubuntu Linux 10.04). For, my system monitor shows a
memory usage of max. about 180 MiB, and it takes about 7 seconds to run.
