yes, if start with "winuae.exe -maxmem 128" it does not crash!

Hmm, but it also does not crash with "winuae.exe -maxmem 256" !? (tested winuae3200) ... and sysinfo reports 256mb of mem!

Edit:
It also does not crash with "winuae.exe -maxmem 512"! (strange - seems it only crash if started without using "-maxmem" parameter)

It seems as using with mem parameter it allocates needed memory ahead, before emu even starts, and that could be the reason why it does not crash, I guess.

So, starting the winuae3200 with "-maxmem 256" parameter the problem is gone! (It does not crash in "Quickstart A1200 Blizzard PPC" anymore)

I noticed I get in sysinfo 256mb also if use "-maxmem 128" parameter! (strange) (anyway, in both cases the PowerUP test passed!)

Edit2:
It works fine also after using "-maxmem 1" parameter! (super strange) (but if using "-maxmem 0" parameter it crashes!)
