| It seems pretty clear to me what is happening: the test program is
| using a lot of memory and is being killed because the machine is
| running out of swap.
| What's not clear to me is why it's failing in this particular way
| instead of e.g. malloc() returning NULL, and what to do about it.
| I'm reluctant to work around this issue by increasing the memory size
| of the test VM from the current 32 MB, because having a limited amount
| of memory has helped find real regressions such as a huge memory leak
| in the /bin/sh yacc parser a while back. If the test really needs
| that much memory, maybe it should be skipped on low-memory machines.
