Ian, I tried fastimport version 72, as you suggested, but unfortunately
this is still failing (I tried to resume the version failed earlier).

Below you can find the current crash report. I also monitored the
during conversion and found the memory size starting of from 2648 (value
from ps 'SZ' column) going up to 379570 (the maximum value) within
13 minutes runtime.

If you have further ideas, please let me know.
