For whatever it's worth, that size does not appear to be a problem in
Linux. Takes a while, and a lot of memory, to get a summary of the
matrix though (I'm slightly puzzled by that: The memory footprint
appears to shoot up to 1.7G for something that is just working
on the columns of a 319M matrix?).
