One of the previous updates added a box on the sector generation window
where you can assign a file name. If thats used, what happens is the
sector data is saved to the database after every 10,000 systems are
generated, and then unloaded from ram. I've made multi GB files with that
in the past, not topping out at more than 350 or 400mb in ram used. After
making a sector that way, it is a good idea to close the program and
re-open the file because ram is going to be very defragmented at that point.

Not sure what is going on w/ the conversion of the older file. But its
possible its the same issue as above - its loading all the system detail
information before saving it to the new format. I'll take a look and see
if its doing that, and add some caching as above if it looks like I can put
it in.
