If there is a chance that we will recover then splitPath may have 
malloc'ed a few segments before failing. I don't know if you want to 
attempt to free those before bailing (could be tricky). On the other 
hand, I think this is java.lang.UNIXProcess's static initializer so the 
OOME will cause that to fail so we are probably hosed anyway.

A minor comment but it would be best to put a space in "if(" to keep it
