And it is so. The module may forget to finalize with NGX_ERROR the
request on OOM situation.

It is impossible because the test case is written in JavaScript in
this module.

Reproducing with ngx_random() was a pain. Now it counts the calls to
the alloc funcs and fails at a specific moment.

IMHO, such a functionality (manageable allocation fails) is good to
have it built into nginx. With a candy configuration and command line
options, debug points and so on ;)

Thank you Maxim for your time and help, again :)
