CreateFiber() : number of fibers limited

independently of the requested stack size (first parameter in
CreateFiber()), CYGWIN will give only 53 fibers. Only when I increase
the stack size above 9.5 MByte, I will get a further reduction in the
number of fibers created.

The error by GetLastError is always no. 8, 'Not enough storage is
available to process this command.'.

Borland C++Builder Compiler (same test application) will reduce the
number of possible fibers according to stack size. 1000 fibers are no
problem with a stack size of 64 k Byte.

Is it possible that there is a bug in libkernel32.a ?
