It seems to be due to the units for styling (my default project was using EPSG 4326, hence degrees) and my styles depends from map units. So, my width for lines was 3 or 4 degrees sometimes.
Anyway, this behaviour should raise an error or a warning to say "Your width is too large considering the units configuration, you should change it" instead of the error that lead to "dumb" memory consumption.
