I have a quite powerful desktop and use Linux, but I only saw 1 CPU being
used and never above 2.5GB of RAM (using the 'top' command - a bit like
Windows' Task Manager/Processes if you haven't used top before).

Single core is correct - LilyPond is single threaded.

I know that that probably doesn't help that much. I do have a windows
machine I could try it on, but that wil have to wait for now as I have to
get to work!

I've attached your Zip file here in case anyone else with Windows wants to
give it a go.

Just run is on my normal desktop - 6 Gig RAM, Vista 64 bit. It dies after 6 minutes, having consumed 1.3 Gigs of RAM. I suspect it might be a problem with Windows memory allocation - it's possible each process is restricted to how much RAM it can allocate. I'll see if I can experiment later.
