We're not doing miracles, sorry. It's just that the special memory 
allocations (for the VM's RAM size and a few additional data structures) 
don't show up as used by the VM process if you use the normal Windows 
tools. Just start the task manager before you start the VM and see how 
much the free memory goes down and you'll realize that it's by far more 
than 66MB :)
