My GNUtunesDB.xml file got too large for XML::Parser to buffer via ->parse_file, and all programs were failing with this error:

> Parsing XML document...

Ran out of memory for input buffer at /usr/lib/perl5/XML/Parser/Expat.pm line 469.

Attached is a patch that fixes the issue by incrementally parsing.
