don't think it's exclusive to windows ... i'm linux user. didn't test 
your specific case but i've seen this problem in the past, and 
coincidentally just the other day with a large include that i've used in 
the past (just two days ago) without difficulty. /nothing/ on my system 
has changed. as a matter of fact had it happen /before/ 3.7 release but 
kept my mouth shut ... well because and i won't get into that
