While technically true, I'm not sure if we want to track this as a bug - this
is a small allocation, so out of memory condition is unlikely to be ever hit in
practice. Even if this happens, the application will just crash, without
letting anyone write to random memory locations. Aborting is what we'd likely
have to do in an explicit check anyway.
