Which means 'buf', 'buf1', 'buf2', and 'arg', (global variables) will
suddenly take up 320k of memory by themselves.  Also every function which
uses a MAX_STRING_LENGTH will suddenly be throwing massive buffers on the
stack.  Remember that under Bash in Linux you are limited to 8 megabytes
of stack per default.  I don't know what Windows limits you to in stack,
but I wouldn't guess it would be much.
