Lukas, just to confirm your findings, I have the exact same problem  
and reported it about 2 months ago. Just like you, when all my stuff  
was running under 32-bit, it wasn't an issue because of the 2GB limit,  
but now that I'm using 64-bit for everything, it is a potential system  
crashing bug.
