unfortunately I have not received a reply to my earlier email yet with 
subject 'BzrFastImport / Bazaar fatal error'.

It appears that Bazaar seems to have stability problems with large number 
of files, large file size or large size of repository. I checked out the 
bug reporting system and found quite a number of yet unsolved 
out-of-memory problems.

The largest files in the working tree of the Git repository I try to 
convert have a size of just ~40 MB and the system has 1.5 GB RAM and 
plenty of swapspace configured, thus there should not be any problem here. 
Both Mercurial and Git have absolutely no problem to deal with that.

Is there any Bazaar fix for the memory problems I could try out or do I 
have to abandon my Bazaar testing?

Best regards
