Kind of.  This patch is not switch to 0 something, but from automatic
permission inheritence to explicit, minimal permissions required.

I was going to ask for a testcase and more info about your system(*)
but then I was able to reproduce it myself.  It seems W7 needs more
permissions for VirtualQueryEx than Windows 8 and later.  I applied a
patch.  New test release coming soon.


(*) It would really be nice not having to ask for these infos every time.
