Thanks for your help!
Increasing the buffer to 2**128 did not help. The perl interpreter still crashes.

    Attempting to allocate 1,208,925,819,614,629,174,706,176 Yottabytes of ram will have crashed the program long before you ever got around to attempting to call the dll.

    2**128 is 3.4028236692093846346337460743177e+38. Which is close to the number of atoms that make up this entire planet, and billions of times more ram than has ever been made. And probably more than ever will be made.

    FYI: 2**30 is probably more than you could allocate on your system.
