DPMI specifies that the server can ask each client to allocate some
extra conventional memory to act as a per-client data area.  This
amount can be anywhere from nothing to many hundreds of Kbytes.
Windows, for example, asks for around 4-5K, whereas QDPMI asks for
around 100-150K.

This memory is NOT part of the DPMI server itself.
