I can't reproduce that (also on W7). How big is bigfile-test.dll?
That one is 20MB. So it would never fit in the a stack (not a
default-sized one anyway).
But it also (mostly) fails on a smaller file (1.5MB).
Given the size difference, if file size mattered, one would always
succeed or the other always fail.
