I just added some RAM to my PC @ work and now wanted Python to be 
capable to make use of it.

My boot.ini has been containing the /3GB switch for quite a while, but 
nevertheless I only could allocate 2 GB in Python.

So I changed python.exe with the imagecfg.exe which I obtained from and it works now.

This is just FYI, for the case one of you would like to be able to do so 
as well.

But be aware that it is not impossible that there are side effects.
