hackage-server memory requirements

What are the typical memory requirements to run hackage-server (as a
mirror of the current hackage).

The reason I ask is that I tried mirroring hackage on my 4GB desktop
machine. I let it mirror overnight but when I came back in the morning
the machine was completely unresponsive. It turned out hackage-server
was consuming all my RAM and the mirroring was just half-way done.

Does this sound like a memory leak or does hackage-server actually
require more than 4GB memory?
