Rogier & I have been busy trying to isolate the memory leak problem we
have encountered on Win2k machines. A lot of people on this list have
suggested this is in fact a Win2k problem. We have indeed verified this
is indeed not a CygWin issue, but I am not totally convinced this is a
Windows problem. The following command can be used to reproduce the leak:
FOR /L %a IN (1,1,65535) DO echo exit | cmd
The above would certainly rule out cygwin then since there isn't any cygwin
Does RAMpage "fix" this problem, assuming you can even run it? If so,
that would indicate a memory fragmentation problem rather than a lack
of memory problem.
