Hi Thomas,

Thanks a lot for looking at the fix.  I totally agree with you: CR 
should be well descriptive. Fixed.

A question: This test is for Parallel only, because it's a regression 
test for a problem in Parallel.
It could be easily made applicable for all collectors to check that 
PrintGCDetails + Verbose doesn't crash when OOM happens.
What is your opinion, does it make any sense or that case is very unlikely?
