I don't know whether Python dictionaries must live in a contiguous piece of
memory, but if so, that could be the issue.  The system DLLs in Server 2003
have been "rebased" in such a way that they chop up the virtual address
space more than XP.  Even though there is more virtual memory available, it
is fragmented.
