Version 1.39 is very old, so you should check in the latest version first to
see if it has been fixed.

If it is still a problem, please give examples of each type of assignment
(file name and line number).

The obvious question is why?  Bacula client doesn't usually need much memory.

The main problem is that Win32 bacula is usually cross compiled using mingw,
but I think that doesn't support 64bit yet.
