Running the following lines let windows physical memory grow until no
more left (task-manager: physical memory). The taken memory is never
freed until os restart. This happens also while compiling huge
projects. Tested on three different Windows 7 x64 machines with actual
cygwin 2.x (32 and 64 bit).

#!/bin/sh
while (( 1 )); do
/bin/true
done
