None "Killed" after large number of initial particles

I am using GEANT version 4.8.0.p01, running under Gentoo Linux 
on a 1GHz machine with 2 GB of RAM. I am trying to model a point 
isotropic gamma-ray source and a Germanium detector. I have my 
detector model and source designed and working except that when 
I try to run more than about a million (1,000,000) intial source 
particles (photons) GEANT just stops responding and then reports
"Killed".

Is there a restriction on the allowed number of initial particles
in GEANT? How can I make GEANT work for this large number of particles?
I need that large number of particles to get my statistics up.

Thanks,
KJ
