Could this be related to use of the MS gflags utility on Windows to force
page frees to happen immediately? I'd used this utility on some other apps
to detect late access to released memory and I thought it marked what apps
it would apply to. I don't think it automatically affects every app used on
the system. It's possible this bug occurs on other systems but they don't
release the freed pages right away, masking an invalid read to released
memory.
