Front End Memory usage while exporting many graphics

I want to create a large number of plots. I am using a setup similar
to:

Do[
  Export[
    "/Users/Shared/"<>ToString[x]<>".eps",
    Plot[Sin[t], {t, 0, 1}, DisplayFunction->Identity],
    "EPS"],
  {x, 1, 100000}
]

With this setup, the Mathematica Front End memory usage starts growing quickly
until it crashes. If the front end is not displaying any of the plots,
I don't understand why it keeps using more and more memory.

Is there a memory efficient way of doing this?

I am using Mathematica 5.1.1 under Mac OS X 10.3.8.
