I made the change.

Yeah. On the other hand one could also argue that these tests don't
belong in Mauve, but in the VM specific test suites. It turns out that
the OutOfMemoryError test that I moved is also a bit dubious, because it
tries to predict when the VM will throw an OutOfMemoryError, but the
spec says nothing about this, it's perfectly legal for the VM to throw
an OutOfMemoryError for a small allocation, but later on allow a larger
allocation (e.g. due to environmental effects).
