Hacky workaround: Use editbin.exe from the windows SDK (or any other exe
editor) to set /LARGEADDRESSAWARE on WoW.exe (use winedump to confirm). This
will cause windows/wine to use large address mode for WoW, allowing up to 3GB
of userspace memory. I have gotten no crashes since doing this, whereas it
would repeatedly crash whenever memory hit 1.6GiB in the past. I'm sitting at
1.7GiB with no issues.

Disclaimer: Hacky. Blizzard might not approve of this, proceed at your own
risk. Back up WoW.exe first.
