Request for review 6472925: OutOfMemoryError fails to generate stack trace as it now ought

Code looks good. Having read the evaluation, I now understand that you
can't generate a stack trace if you are out of memory.
I'm assuming this additional message may also print for a  
StackOverflowError -
that would be very helpful - I just spent too long trying to track one  
of those down.
