Comment (by dbaston):

 > Interesting. The OP says he encountered this in PostGIS - but wouldn't
 PostGIS have set those handlers as well?

 Yes. The problem seems to arise from the handlers that PostGIS is
 registering with GEOS, not with GEOS itself.

 > In any case, we really want to try and return an actual result, rather
 than a crash or an error.

 Yes, although it will always be possible to exhaust memory, so it's
 important that the out-of-memory behavior not be a crash.
