Sure, thank you. I think I see the problem now. You are decompressing very compressible files (99.99% saved) to stdout, and this allows *every thread* of plzip to produce output faster than it is consumed.

The current method of limiting memory usage does not cover this case. I am working on a new method and will release e new version in a few days. Please, stay tuned.

Best regards,
