Memory Leak on export png????

Some more information:
I built a standalone, this writes 288 files but I don't get the error
dialog and it doesn't complete correctly, e.g. I don't get the
"Done!" dialog at the end.
Looking at the System Activity Monitor it only grabs around 35 MB of
real memory 377 MB of virtual - it doesn't allocate the Gigabytes as
it does while running under the IDE.
Anyone got *any* ideas how to work around this? I am working on a
demo and need this to work ASAP, otherwise I may as well just stop
work on it now.
All the Best

Yes, I've just verified it again, it takes 1.8 GB and never gives it
back. If I put the counter field back, it stops at file 289 with a
write error, if I don't have the counter (or if the counter is pushed
behind the rectangle (which is filled with "red")) then it writes a
lot more files before it hangs. Did you try this on Windows or just
on the Mac?
Thanks a lot
