Thanks you!  Added to branch and trunk.

We've done some significant work on the compiler in removing errors
unconvered by the random tester -- some of these result in more stack
usage, and this could be the issue, but it has not yet been
definitively determined.  These two particular tests do take more
memory than they used to in 2.4.  Something to look into in 2.7.

Take care,
