When I restarted the node it crashed (!) with:

how do I determine how much memory it's going to need and more important how can I cancel
such indexing if I don't have enough memory available? Or did I hit some bug and should simply
wait for rc3?

The good news: with 3.5G it didn't crash, yet. 
The bad news: the node is full GCing for over 1 day now... 

Any advice what to do with it?
