psyco out of memory

I have this simple *dumb* benchmark-like program:

#import psyco
#psyco.full()

d = 0.0
for i in xrange(1000000000):
     d += i
print d

I though I'd use it to try out psyco, but no, when I enable the first 
two lines, python core-dumps:

Fatal Python error: psyco: out of memory
Abort (core dumped)

Now this isn't a real-world application example, but it's certainly 
unexpected. Did psyco try to mimic range() and allocate 1G of integers?

(I'm running python 2.3.4 on FreeBSD 5)
