--no-secmem-warning does only work on system which are capable of
locking memory.  There is currently no easy way to do this under
Windows and I considere to remove this message for Windows.  Even
with a (free) device driver which can be used to protect memory it
might not make sense at all, given all the other ways to snoop on
Windows memory or break into the system.
