Virtual memory exhausted

I am using cyrus-imapd 2.2.12 with nntp-functions enabled.
I was using instructions from
http://asg.web.cmu.edu/cyrus/download/imapd/install-netnews.html to get
some nntp-groups to my local server and to be able to access all the
posts history using IMAP
It went fine, until I tried to get a really big newsgroup..
looking thru /var/spool/imap/folder/corresponding/to/group I can see
that I managed to get 12708 messages.. but the problem is, that I just
can't access those using IMAP-protocol.
Here is the listing of the session:
* OK t1.cjlohbi.su Cyrus IMAP4 v2.2.12 server ready

Everything works fine with smaller groups.
Also, I was watching top, during this session - I didn't see a single
sign of memory exhaustion - there's plenty of it.
and, yes, there are no ulimits set
should it be considered a bug report?
