If the soft limit is set to 'unlimitied' for the user running the program, 
then it is not a datasize problem. You may simply be out of memory. Can you 
track using top(1) how far the software gets and what the memory usage is at 
around the time it crashes?


Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
    and never get to the software part.
