Description

Trace Malloc MaxHeap results seem to jump between two values on these Linux machines, causing occasional false regression alarms and making real regression finding tricky:

http://graphs.mozilla.org/graph.html#tests=[[29,63,6]]&sel=1365091290490,1365696090490&displayrange=7&datatype=running
This is annoying but it's unclear what can be done about it, given that we have just a single number.

A guess would be that it depends on whether we GC at some point or another when we're at max memory usage.
we don't run this specific test anymore
