Does Win2k have limits on the amount of RAM an individual program is
allowed to use?  It sounds like gnubg is swapping memory out to
disk. I don't know enough about Windows OSes to know if you need to
tell it how much RAM or disc space a program is allowed to use -
certainly such limits are available and often used in Unix.
