Yes, I've seen this problem before and not only with the serialization
library. Also other template-rich programs, e.g. using the BGL library
need enormous amounts of memory when being compiled with optimization
turned on and Apple's version of gcc-3.3 . My guess is that some of the
Apple modifications lead to a huge memory bloat when optimizing some
template code, as I've not seen this problem with the standard version
of gcc-3.3.
