Hi Brian,

You might want to add an @requires of 8Gb or whatever so the test only 
runs on a system it can succeed on.

I don't see the @randomness in the test.  (Other than perhaps available 

ByteArrayOutputStream:121: A message indicating the nature of the error 
would be useful.

In the test, I don't think you need to fill the array, writing 0 is just 
as good as 0xff.
