Mathematica sometimes falters when dealing with (very) large documents.
This problem is likely exacerbated under low-memory conditions.
If you have not already set $HistoryLength to some low value,
then perhaps that would help. I usually use a value of 10;
if your iterative process does not rely on previous results, you might try

I hope this helps; but it may not!
