Watching it in top memory usage does indeed increase continuously. But 
it crashes after a varying number of files/percentage memory usage (only 
about 12%)

I have also got occasionally

Fatal Python error: GC object already tracked
35      Aborted (core dumped)

which seems to point to python screwing up the garbage collection
