3707585  is the low side works with my form of wine most likely the complier I used built wine smaller.   Try -v 4194304  I think the issue may not be 3Gbyte alone.   Because once you go over 4194304 the pointer to the memory location no longer fits in a 32 bit number.

Ok Linux kernel set to 3Gbyte of memory will still give almost unlimited virtual memory on 64 bit systems.  Ok unlimited to what windows applications are use to.  32 gb worth per 32 bit application.

Now I don't know exactly what wine is telling the application.  mem=3g as a kernel switch or using cgroup  changes the amount of physical ram that can be see to be existing by an application.   Issue here might need using both side by side.    One to restrict virtual memory to the same limits as windows and one to lie about how much ram you have installed in your machine.

mem=3g and cgroup change only will do something if you have more than 3g of physical ram in the machine.

Part of working out the bug is working out what area the bug is in.   Is it phyisical memory detection or is it Virtual memory.   Or is it both.  Or most annoying case neither wine.

Yes we have two different bugs that give almost the same effect now what one is your program.
