I retried test_MIMEText.tar.bz2	on FreeBSD 8.0 with 640 MB of memory: the program takes ~5 minutes, but it doesn't fail (no memory error or crash).

I suppose that the crash cannot be reproduced by test_MIMEText.tar.bz2 example, only with the full program. Because I don't have access to the full program, I am unable to reproduce the bug, and because there is no activity on this issue since 2 years: I close this issue.

If you have more information (especially a short script to reproduce the crash), reopen the issue or create a new issue (maybe more specific? eg. patch MIMEText to use less memory).
