Tests that consume all the heap and trigger OOME will often have 
reliability issues, sometimes this happens when the tests are run with 
different combinations of VM options or when there is concurrent 
activity as the OOME can be triggered at different times. For the test 
that we are discussing here then there is no need to go there. Instead I 
think the weak ref + explicit GC approach is more reliable, and easier 
to understand too.
