No, there was never an 'official' patch from Borland, for any version 
of Borland Pascal 7...

Before mentioned runtime error effects only compiled programs that 
utilize the CRT unit. The IDE/compiler itself and compiled programs 
that do not use the stock CRT unit are not effected by that runtime

Certainly not. I have the BP7 (and BC++3.01) IDE running on hosts 
with 512 and 768MB of RAM with no issue (not on a FreeDOS system though)..
