This is also my experience and the reason why I cannot use duplicity since our storage server cannot deal with lots of files.

Even with a rather small --volsize of 512MB I could not get a full backup to the server. The maximum seems to be around 128MB, which is too small for me.

Is python limiting its memory footprint somehow? My machine has 3GB of RAM.
