Zipping many files bails with 'out of memory'

If you run zip on a large set of files (in my case: ~40000 mails), the process size grows constantly (but moderately) and finally bails with an 'out of memory' error.
I did not follow the process precisely, but I doubt that the zip process did exceed 100MB in size (on my 2GB machine running haiku natively). That should not be a reason for out-of-memory, should it?
Anyway, since I can reproduce it here, I will look into it later today.
