Note that the linker is a separate process from the compiler. You may want to use he -Cn option, this will omit the linking stage and generate a ppas.bat file which you can call manually afterwards.

To enable virtual memory usage, you first have to configure cwsdpmi to do so (specify the max virtual memory size and where to create the swap file). I don't think the configuration app comes with FPC, but you can get it by downloading the official cwsdpmi package from a DJGPP mirror (see here for a list: <http://www.delorie.com/djgpp/getting.html>) from the directory 2misc (you'll want the file csdpmi5b.zip).

That's a bug in the compiler. We've already fixed a lot of such bugs (crashes when reompiling a program without first deleting the results of the previous compilation), but new ones always seem to pop up.I this regard, 1.0.4/1.0.5 is much more stable.
