You are absolutely right, it is the number of constraints that seems to eat
memory like there is no tomorrow. I had a design which had a reasonable
number of false-path which couldn't be routed on 4Gbyte+4Gbyte swap machine,
however, when I removed the constraints it only consumed 1Gbyte.

The point I should have made is that memory prices are at an all time low so
don't skimp on it especially since most laptops are now dual core so you
might need some reserves for your VMware session :-)
