Bug 644241 will remove the script stack quota, after which we will be more vulnerable to OOMs from misbehaving scripts. We should prevent those in a proper way.

One possible approach is outlined in Bug 644241 comment 26.

We will also disable some tests that OOM in that bug, and should reenable them here.
