There is a bug in the MS C runtime for windows that you can only do this a limited number of times before you get the 'out of memory' error (regardless of how much memory is left). It's related to a larger problem of memory fragmentation in windows. We created a workaround for the commercially supported release (basically we allocate larger chunks of memory if the option is set in the control panel) but there hasn't been enough interest or time to port it to the open source 2.5.04 yet. Unless your previous server was non-Windows you would have had exactly the same problem on that server. CVSNT on linux/unix/mac does not exhibit this problem (as I said it's actually a bug in the windows c runtime). > I need to have this server up and running by tomorrow.
