[Numpy-discussion] memory usage of numpy arrays

Hi.
I am using numpy arrays and when constructing an array I get a  "cannot
allocate memory for thread-local data: ABORT"
The array i'm constructing is
zeros((numVars, 2, numVars, 2), dtype=float) Where numVars is at about 2000.

I was expecting the memory usage to be
2000*2000*2*2*8Bytes=128.000.000Bytes=128MBytes

So why is that happening? What am I missing?
Thanks for any help.
