That is the usual behavior of all applications based on GLib. In an
out-of-memory situation, the application exits with an error message.
This is probably what you are calling a 'crash'. This can usually be
avoided by setting the tile-cache size reasonably and by providing
enough virtual memory.
The memory usage during batch processing should remain pretty much
constant though. This indicates that there is likely a memory leak
somewhere. valgrind should help to locate the problem.
