From: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JRUBY-3887. OutOfMemoryError on 1.7.18 and JRuby 9000 also fails to pass the test.

The attached file tests that the BigDecimal security fix has been applied (to the MRI interpreter). MRI returns almost immediately. JRuby appears to go into an infinite loop.

The files are lost to time and space, unfortunately. We did patch around recent BigDecial parsing bugs that affected the JVM, MRI, and other runtimes, so hopefully we got this one.
