Running Program memory limit

I'm using the pan newsreader in FreeBSD 6.0-BETA2 #0 build from ports.
Pan operates normally on small newsgroups with not to many articles,
however if i try to load a group with 1000000+ articles (my servers have
good retention) Pan seems to bomb out completely whilst loading the
groups articles, giving no errors or warnings.
Memory usage for the process is high upto ~500meg RAM at any one time
when loading the group.
Has the Kernel reached a theoretical limit for the size of a process and
killed it off?
If so can this behaviour be changed at all?
