This isn't directed at any one person.

Anyone care to explain why this might be happening? I'm doing largely
the same thing but with about 1000 fewer files, and I'm not having
iTunes copy the files. It's using the files directly from the (NetBSD)
samba server. I don't see this same problem.

It seems like iTunes should just be working serially, file by file,
and that seems like it shouldn't be using so much memory?

Maybe I'm missing something here, I don't really understand what
iTunes is trying to do, or if Samba is trying to do something fancy.
It just "works", and I haven't messed with it.
