Thanks for playing extended memory.  I only vaguely remembered that you
toyed around with ASLR at one point, but I wasn't sure if that had any
positive effect.  I only recall that I was rather doubtful back then,
but I'm always doubtful if something new comes down the road ("in my
days we didn't need this stuff and, btw., get off my lawn").
