 CLISP stack problems under windows

Hi there,
I'm trying to port/run a CLISP application under windows. My
application was developed on CLISP under linux. I need to set it up
under windows.

For this I'm using CLISP for windows (version dated 1997-09-19). It
was compiled and set up under cygus wygwin.  (windows 2000)

I start clisp
lisp.exe -M lispinit.mem -m 64M

64 seems to be the max I can set.

However when I try to load some models etc it crashes saying
*** - Program stack overflow. RESET
*** - handle_fault error1 !
SIGSEGV cannot be ured. Fault address = 0x99037128

I've read a number of postings/articles regarding this error on the
sourforge page for clisp and on the newsgroups.
The impressions I've had were
1. The segmentation fault is currently a bug in clisp which is yet to
be fixed (for win)
2. THere are some workarounds
      i. the -m option = I've tried this to no avail.
      ii. Increasing the program stack size - I can't do this without
binedit.exe. (Should I try this)
      iii. I can increase stack size by recomiling clisp with a larger
memory image???? (i'm currently trying to download the various
packages for cygwin to make/compile clisp again :) ).

Any inputs would be appreciated.
