Performance of the obj import addon

Hi everyone,

I have a little question about the obj import addon (I’m using blender x64 2.65 on windows 7 with 8 Gb of RAM) I’m trying to load pretty big obj files (~200 Mb) and Blender quickly uses all the system’s memory. After a while, I have to kill it (it starts swapping, everything starts being really slow)

Do somebody already had the same problem ? Is there any “memory optimized” version of the obj importer out there that I could try ? (I searched a bit but had no luck)

Thanks in advance for any help !
