[Haskell-cafe] Memory usage of cabal install

I have a problem with high memory usage of cabal-install. Whenever I
try to install or upgrade a package, cabal manages to consume 1,3G of
memory before I killed it (on a 32-bit machine with 1 GB of memory).
Increasing verbosity does not help, memory consumption goes up after the
message "Resolving dependencies..." shows up.
I use ghc 6.8.2 and cabal-install version 0.5.1 using version 188.8.131.52 of
the Cabal library.
Is there a workaround? I would like to avoid fetching & building packages
