+    <p>Note that on Windows, you may run into problems when running many piped

+    caused by running out of desktop heap space. The desktop heap space given
+    to each service is specified by the third argument to the
+    <code>SharedSection</code> parameter in the
+    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\SubSystems\Windows

+    caveats for changing the Windows registry apply, but you might also exhaust
+    the desktop heap pool if the number is adjusted too high.</p>
