Smile Prime95 - Computer Properties wrong memory size

Registered today on the v5 server and loaded it onto my laptop as a test. Prime95 v25.7, build 3 runs fine but there's one thing I noticed. On PrimeNet the Computer Properties are not accurate:

Quote:
Software Version Windows,Prime95,v25.7,build 3
Model Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7300 @ 2.00GHz
Features Dual core, Prefetch,SSE,SSE2
Speed 1.994 GHz (0.531 GHz P4 effective equivalent)
L1/L2 Cache 32 / 4096 KB
Computer Memory 2048 MB configured usage 32 MB day / 32 MB night
Reliability, Confidence 1.00, 0.0
The L1/L2 cache is correct but not the Computer Memory size as I've got 4GB installed. Not running an x64 OS but a plain old XP Pro 32 bit and thus reporting 3.49 GB of RAM. Seems like Prime95 didn't determine this more accurately.

Anything over 2GB will be reported as 2GB - this is not harmful. I'll have a fix for version 25.8.

I'll bet Linux and Win64 are OK. Just Win32 has the problem?
