here we go again. that's the program I wrote:
--------------------------------------------------------------
#include <stdlib.h>
int main(int argc, char **argv) {
unsigned long long int bytes;
char *mem;
if (argc < 2)
bytes = 0x40000000; // 1gb
else
bytes = strtoll(argv[1], NULL, 10);
printf("allocate %llu: ", bytes);

if (mem = malloc(bytes))
{
printf("ok\n");
printf("set them to 0... ");
memset(mem,0,bytes);

printf("done\n");

}
else
printf("not ok\n");
return 0;
}
--------------------------------------------------------------
and that's the log:

fang ~sergei> ./memtest 10000
allocate 10000: ok
set them to 0... done
fang ~sergei> ./memtest 100000
allocate 100000: ok
set them to 0... done
fang ~sergei> ./memtest 1000000
allocate 1000000: ok
set them to 0... done
fang ~sergei> ./memtest 10000000

fang ~sergei> ./memtest 100000000
allocate 100000000: ok
set them to 0... done
fang ~sergei> ./memtest 1000000000
allocate 1000000000: ok
