Hi Igor

I'm sure it it was in windows vm ... years ago  I used to specify it with 
squeak vm because of long startup time.

and the code seems to be still here in sqWin32Intel.c , but I don' t think 
it is used anymore , because there is also sqAllocateMemory in 
sqWin32Alloc.c (did not investigate much).

  { ARG_UINT, &dwMemorySize, "-memory:" },          /* megabyte of memory to 
use */
  if(!dwMemorySize) {
    dwMemorySize = 4;
    virtualMemory = (int)imageSize + max(imageSize, dwMemorySize * 
  } else {
    virtualMemory = (int)dwMemorySize * 0x00100000;
  /* initial commit size = imageSize + 4MB */
  virtualMemory = imageSize + 0x00400000;

Indeed. That's the idea.

i'm not sure if there was such switch on windoze.
