running out of application memory when generating report for Python's stdlib
While preparing for the upcoming sprints at PyCon CA I was generating an HTML report and as usual it was taking hours to generate the HTML report, so I left it running overnight. But when I checked on it this morning I had a message from OS X reporting that there was no more application memory left and I needed to quit some programs even though I only had Chrome, Sublime Text 2, Terminal, and Finder running.
I was able to generate per-module reports by generating them by letter (e.g. Lib/a*.py), but that doesn't give an HTML overview of coverage. Plus I can't do it for a text-based report either as it gets hung up when reaching 'locale'.
I'm wondering what coverage is keeping around in memory that could be triggering this. Are the reports not tossed after being created?
I have attached the coverage report in case that is in any way helpful.
