FPC 3.2.0 limits the total size of local variables and parameter space 
for a single procedure/function to 2GB on 32 bit and 64 bit targets. On 
FPC 3.0.4 the limit was the maximum size supported by the address space.

The previous size check for the locals was not working correctly 
according to the commit message, but I don't know why this was changed 
like that for 64 bit targets.
