Using a version of cygwin installed around April of '03 I could increase 
the stack size with  gcc flag -Wl,--stack to 256 Mb, but now, on the 
same machine (512 Mb RAM, Windows XP Pro) I can get only 150 Mb using a 
recent cygwin download. What has changed in memory usage since April '03?

I reinstalled the prior version of cygwin but cannot duplicate the 
behavior I observed before. (Still having problems with g77, too.)  
Could this be related to upgrading Windows XP to SP2?
