[EMBOSS] tfscan error received

I ran tfscan using a fragment about 200 mega bp and successfully created a 2gb output file without error. But recently the same job failed (with the same transfac datafile). The error I got is:
Uncaught exception: Allocation failed, insufficient memory available, raised at embpat.c:1475
The command I used was
tfscan -menu O -mismatch 0 -minlength 4 -sequence inseq -outfile outseq
The output file was indeed created but only about 20mb.
I tried to run the same job several times and got 1 successful run and got 2gb of output file as well. The binary, the database and the computer node I ran on have all stay the same. Is there any reasonable explanation about this?
