When merging 8 Nikon d800 DNG pictures, the program quickly produces a very nice looking preview. When changing projection the new preview is generated in less than 5 seconds. But when the actual merging is started, the memory use rises from 1 GB to the maximum free RAM 6 of total 8 GB.
When the merge is 54% fulfilled the proces stops.
I haven't experience this before. Is this a new bug in lightroom or is it beause I this time try to merge 8 and not just 4 or 6 pictures.

It certainly is possible that you need more memory. This is a memory intensive task.
