[tex-live] Memory leak in TL Net Installer when installing from local mirror ?

The install of TL 2008 from my local Cambridge
mirror has just near-completed (by which I mean
that the GUI has paused with the "Finish"
button shewing) but the VM manager reported
that the system was becoming dangerously low
on memory, and on checking I see that it
peaked at 6Gb.  I cannot imagine what in the
installer might require such enormous resources,
so I wonder if there might be a memory leak ?

It is worth reporting that the VM message
did not appear on a smaller (1GB, instead
of 2Gb in the present machine) when installing
over the network from Cambridge.
