Try turning off the declare/fetch driver option.  With this option on, the
driver is trying to store every single tuple in memory.   With the option
off, it will only store 100 by default, or the number you enter for the
cache size.   Since the import is accessing the tuples in a forward-only
fashion, there is no need to use the declare/fetch.
