Not sure why this is filling my sys memory

Code is below, The files are about 5mb and 230,000 rows. When I have 43
files of them and when I get to the 35th (reading it in) my system gets so
slow that it is nearly functionless. I am on a mac and activity monitor
shows that python is using 2.99GB of memory (of 4GB). (python 2.6 64bit).
The getsizeof() returns 6424 bytes for the alldata . So I am not sure what
is happening.
Any ideas
Thanks
