I've had amazing results with OS X in terms of getting memory as needed (I
once decompressed a 60MB gzip file using Rev's builr-in decompress function
-- the resulting file as 568MBs; it took a while but had was completed
successfuly).  I would not think it's a memory issue in this case.

Does it stop running at the same place in each attempt?  There may be
something about a particular graphic that's causing the hang.
