CLOSURE opcode tries to allocate large objects on the minor heap #6385
Original bug ID: 6385
If a function closes over more than Max_young_wosize variables, the CLOSURE opcode in interp.c will nonetheless try to allocate it on the minor heap.
When using the debug runtime, this causes an assertion failure. For a big enough function / unlucky enough minor heap state, I suspect it would cause memory corruption.
Steps to reproduce
Compile the attached file and run with ocamlrund.
