I think so are inserting so fast, that the signer can't keep up
transferring and signing the new data.
If you keep on inserting forever, the total zone size will become too
large to fit into memory, and some failure will occur.
Note that the amount of memory needed is an order of magnitude larger
than the raw zone file, but it will be linear.  If you have 1 million
record sets, when it runs out of memory I think you have a relative
small machine (2GB).  I think the amount of memory in use (10GB) is due
to the backlog of work.

With kind regards,
