gnu emacs memory issue

Dear Sir or Madam:

I have been using GNU emacs for years, originally on Sun Solaris and now
on Windows.  Emacs is great.  However, recently something happened
basically rendering emacs unusable on my PC.  Emacs continues to
allocate memory, at a pretty fast pace, until my machine is frozen and I
need to force it to power off.  Just starting emacs will cause the
problem.

I have a Windows XP Pro PC with 3 GB of memory.  I was running emacs
21.3 when I first had the problem.  I upgraded to emacs 22.2 in hopes of
a fix, but the problem did not go away.

I don't know what changed to cause the problem.

Any thoughts?  Is there a variable I can set to control the maximum
memory, or something else?

Thank you!
