I've been doing some DirectX work with Jason and have
come across a problem? with heapalloc.

As soon as my system ram maxes out heapalloc fails,
even though Linux is using some ram for cache and only
500k of swap is used.

Wine is using <300Mb I ahve 512Mb ram and 512 swap.

I've written a small test app using malloc to make
sure swap is working and I can allocate well over
700Mb of ram without any problems.

Should I be using something other than heapalloc or is
this a 'wine' problem?
