2.2.30: Can't start SFTP process, FzSFtp.exe "missing"

I recently upgraded from 2.2.29 to 2.2.30. 2.2.29 was working flawlessly before the upgrade. Immediately after upgrading, SFTP stopped working. Upon trying to connect, FileZilla would report in the log window:

Error: Can't start SFTP process. Please ensure that the file 'FzSFtp.exe' is in the same folder as 'FileZilla.exe'
Error: Unable to connect!

It would then retry several times with a pause in between tries. All attempts would fail. I went to my FileZilla installation folder (C:\Program Files\FileZilla) and verified that the program FzSFtp.exe did exist. When I opened a command prompt in that folder and manually executed that command, I got:

C:\Program Files\FileZilla>fzsftp
Program too big to fit in memory

No configuration changes were made between the working version of 2.2.29 and the upgrade. Downgrading back to 2.2.29 let FileZilla start working again, so I'm assuming something changed in 2.2.30 that broke FzSFtp.exe. I was able to reproduce this problem on two different systems (one XP Pro SP2, the other XP Home SP2).
