Virtual Memory exceeded

Hi,

We've got some trouble with bro...
After about 2 hours running bro (mt script), bro crash with a :
"Virtual Memory exceeded in 'new'" Error.

Can someone suggest me what I can do about this (I've already increased
RAM and swap from 32Mb to 64Mb) ?
Is there a way to check what part of bro is taking whole this memory (stream
buffers or active sessions table, ...)


Config PC:
Pentium 200 Mhz
64 Mb RAM

Config OS:
Redhat 5.2
64 Mb Swap space.
original 486 kernel version (I didn't recompile kernel to be sure to have
the most standard config).
no errors reported in syslog

Config BRO:
bro 0.5a
script mt.bro
