Actually, it's not always failing, it's just failing a lot, which is
OK.  It's due to code in the runtime to try to allocate the two
semispaces used for copying collection as far apart as possible (one
at a very high address, one at a very low address) so that we don't
get bitten by virtual address space fragmentation.
