I have just made some tests on my system (Windows XP SP2, Pentium IV HT2.6 GHz, 1 Go RAM) with 5.2 ans 6.0. As expected, Karl's notebook works fine with 5.2 (using less than 100 Mo of RAM); however, testing 6.0 results in consuming all of the available memory (I killed the kernel after it had eating up 1.8 Go).
