I had 2GB RAM and a 300GB swap partition and was monitoring memory 
consumption with "top": it never went over 3BG before failing.

With the 2.7.x version of xfs_repair found on a live CD distro, memory 
consumption never exceeds 1GB on the same filesystem. Why has the 2.8.11 
version become so greedy?
