limit for # of items created with "new" ?


I am experiencing a problem when I need to allocate a large number of small
objects with new. (cygwin, gcc 3.2). Up to about 160 000 objects
I'm doing fine, but above the process receives a sigterm and croaks.

On occasion, even the entire bash shell becomes corrupt and needs to be shut
When this happens, the bash shell complains :

*** mount version mismatch detected - 0xA820/0x1B.
You have multiple copies of cygwin1.dll on your system.
Search for cygwin1.dll using the Windows Start->Find/Search facility
and delete all but the most recent version.  The most recent version
reside in x:\cygwin\bin, where 'x' is the drive on which you have
installed the cygwin distribution.

Is there a maximum numbers of "new-allocatable" objects? If yes, is this
number configurable?

thx a lot,

P.s. Btw, I'm running Win2k with 512 MByte memory. When I watch the process
die in task manager, the total memory load is at about 450 MByte.
