Unless I'm missing something, looks like something might be wrong with
how we discover available memory on Windows: how come a process with a
400MB memory footprint says MEM FULL on a 3GB machine?

FWIW, I had a couple of days ago a similar incident: a 380MB Emacs
process running on a 1.5GB machine claimed to have passed 75% of
available memory.
