I have managed to keep memory footprint low, but have found that, independent of the physical RAM of the machine, python always gives the MemoryError message when it has occupied exactly only 2.2 GB. I have tested this in 4 different machines, all with memory of 3 to 4 GB... I'm amazed.

Please check the archives for the thread Please help with MemoryError,
it was only posted a day or two back. It's a problem specific to Windows.
