[EMBOSS] diffseq memory problem?

Dear EMBOSS developers,


I have been using diffseq to compare too strains of the same bacteria
species using "10" as wordsize without any problem. 

However, when I try to reduce this number to "4", after several hours of
calculation the server collapses, all RAM and SWAP are used.

Is there any option to avoid that, or do you know if someone is working
on that problem?


Many thanks,


Best regards,
