Are you using 64 bit, or 32 bit? There's a memory limit error (especially on windows) that kicks in on the qt5 codebase. It's inside the parser framework. There's a bug for better handling, but, really, there's not much can be done either, unless you feel like simplifying the webkit source code a bit (which is were it does the out of ordinary macro expansion). I did a fair bit of profiling, and there's not really much we can do to not hit the memory wall.


The only workaround currently is to use a 64 bit compile.
