Stack corruption in MSYS with Windows 10

I’m sure it’s happened in other versions of Windows too.  Everything will be fine, then out of the blue you start getting errors like this:

0 [main] us 0 init_cheap: VirtualAlloc pointer is null, Win32 error 487
AllocationBase 0x0, BaseAddress 0x71110000, RegionSize 0x3B0000, State 0x10000
d:\mingw\bin\sh.exe: *** Couldn’t reserve space for cygwin’s heap, Win32 error 0
make: *** [all] Error 1

Well MSYS like Cygwin uses persistent shared memory locations, and if they become corrupt, it’s game over.

So yeah, reboot.
