Currently, if you run the test suite of a 64bit Windows python installation it consumes all your memory and - depending on your RAM and swap space - you system becomes unusable. That's a behaviour nobody expects.

I didn't look into the implementation of the test case test_list. Therefore I can't make a proposal what to change. Obviously there are at least two options: 
- skip the test
- replace "sys.maxint" with "sys.maxsize" in test_overflow
