You misunderstood my remark.
If the test takes a lot of time and eats a lot of memory, it's precisely because
the MemoryError isn't raised; and the test needs MemoryError to be raised in
order to be meaningful.

I was proposing a way of fixing the test so that the MemoryError is raised,
which would also stop it from taking a lot of time.
