That happens quite often. For example, Intel's compiler for 32-bit is a 32-bit 
application. When linking a moderately-sized library (like QtGui) with link-
time optimisation, it requires more than 3 GB of working set. That means the 
process never finishes.

An application that requires 3 GB of working set simply cannot be 32-bit.

In any case, if the application needs memory and can't get it, what do you 
suggest it do?
