If the art embedded in each track per album is exactly the same, then yes you get one art image per album. Otherwise not, which is easy when adding individual tracks from the same album over time. Also, there's the behavior you noted awhile ago, namely the process WA uses to select an aggregate image for the album's tracks seems to vary.

Even so, I think it's the number of images, rather that reading them from the tags, that eventually uses up the available physical RAM and the virtual memory is somehow blocked.
