Well, I did try to compile it on Win7/64 with several different settings to
LILYPOND_GC_YIELD (100, 70, 50, 35, 25, 18, 13, 9, 7, 1). All trials faild
at my setup. The "commited memory usage" for the 32bit Lilypond process
displayed in the taks manager was approx. 1.3 GB in all processes at the
time they failed, which is much away from the 4 GB 32bit applications can
reach under 64bit-Windows (3 GB under 32bit-Windows).
I wonder, if there is a software limit for the heap in guile.
