Hello cywin guru,

  Maybe you can help me with the following problem.
We are running Cygwin version 1.1 on Windows NT.
When the process reaches MEMUSAGE 143 Meg the calloc
fails. We ran this on a machine with 252 Meg RAM and
also on a machine with 512 RAM, it makes no difference.
Additional swap space doesn't seem to play a role either.

We will greatly appreciate your expert advice on this matter.
