There is a (lengthy) discussion on this listed started on Mon, 3 Dec 2001 
19:58:17 +0000 (by me) entitled "Hyphenating Cyrillic text.".

(It relates to a lack of memory experienced when trying to load hyphenation 
patterns for Cyrillic languages as well as keeping W.European hyphenation 
patterns loaded. So I think it has parallels to your problem ... though the 
title would hardly help you find it!)

The conclusion, I understood, was one has to change parameters _and_ 
recompile. (Recompile a format file, not the document ... ;-)>  )

you can configure the mem values in texmf.cnf and recompile a format file;
after that you can enlarge extra_mem-* values without recompiling
