No.  We had a buffer whose size was 0xf804, in a block starting at
0x1f0000, which means we already had 0x10000 committed there.  We
needed to enlarge buffer text by another 0x1000 (4KB), which exceeded
the 64KB committed size by 807 bytes, so we asked for a commit of 807
bytes of the next region, starting at 0x200000.  That should have
given us a single 4KB page, since the state of that region was
"reserved".  Instead, it failed with ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER.

IOW, all of the 64KB of the 0x1f0000 block were already committed, and
all we needed was a single page of the next block.
