Does anyone know the maximum size I can have for a metadata.xml file for
a given amount of ram etc.?

it seems that the Greenstone import process is simply not built
to handle a metadata file that large. The easiest solution would be
to split your import directory (and metadata.xml file) up into
smaller directories under the main import directory. The filesystem
should end up looking something like the following:
import/
import/001/metadata.xml
import/001/file1
import/001/file2
import/001/.....
import/001/file9
import/002/metadata.xml
import/002/file10
import/002/file11
import/002/...
import/002/file19
import/003/metadata.xml
import/003/file20
import/001/file21
.............

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
