Indeed, it will drag the whole system down.  That said (on linux, at
least) when the program chomps too much memory, it'll get killed by
the oom-killer anyway, so you're not much better off ignoring the
exception.  You can probably write a simple script to restart the app,
as a fallback, after it sends an email to the admin containing the
error message.
