Description

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.

Bug 644241 landed a few months after this bug was filed. Iain, do you think there's more to be done here?

Since this bug was created, we have moved a long way in the direction it suggests. Our current OOM-handling infrastructure handles OOM much more robustly than the linked suggestion.

There's nothing more to be done here.
