That number is not an error code, it's 4 Gb + 1 --- 1 byte more the largest
amount of memory that Windows can report, amongst other things. It's 2
more than the absolute range of numbers available to a signed 32-bit
integer. Hmm...what else...? One byte more than the maximum limit size of
an external file....nice that the server was able to pick up something
about the OS exception before crashing.
