Starting with the 2011-07-21 snapshot, emacs doesn't work well with the 
large-address-awareness flag set (under 64-bit Win7).  As soon as emacs 
is started, a *Warning* buffer is created with the following message:

   Emergency (alloc): Warning: past 95% of memory limit

To reproduce, install emacs and do the following:

$ peflags --bigaddr=1 /usr/bin/emacs-nox.exe

$ emacs-nox.exe -Q
