Thanks Roberto.

I guess that was exactly the problem.   My "main" file was 
automatically generated and was composed only of functions calls.
It was really large (over 22Mb).

Before I received your message I simply split the file in
4,  and processed one by one...
Next time I'll follow your advice and create function
