I installed Python 2.7.5 including tests using the MSI installer from Running 

python.exe -m test.regrtest -v test_list

consumes all available memory and renders the my system completely unusable. I had to reboot. The problem is caused by the test case "test_overflow". If you run the test with an imposed memory limit, e.g. by using ulimitnt ( , test_overflow passes.

I propose to skip this test on Win64.
