heh, now the comment has been changed to
/* maybe you'll get lucky next time. */

instead of a potential buffer overflow there's now a
potential infinite loop. to the effect of "while(!malloc(x))"

actually, i don't know if that's really a problem. in my
experience, the OS always kills an app when it runs out of
memory. (but that may not always be the case?)
