RE: G77 160 MB memory allocation limit

  Please, Fabrizio, no more offlist mail!  It should be obvious from the
conversation in the web archive that I don't use fortran, so just because I
can speculate about the reasons based on what goes on in equivalent
situations in C, I can't actually investigate myself, because I couldn't
even write "Hello world" in g77 myself.

  Nobody knows.  Something changed.  Perhaps in cygwin.  Then again, have
you also installed XP SP2 in the period since 1.5.12?  That caused massive
disturbances to process memory map space because M$ rebased all the dlls in
the whole world.

  You'll need to before anyone might be
able to tell you what's happening.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
