Yes. The test doesn't run with more than the requested "units", but if you
run it without -M it does run with a very small number, in order to make
sure the tests don't bitrot.

The mechanism could do with an overhaul though; I wrote it in 2006 or so,
before we had test skipping and when memory limits were a lot lower (and we
had fewer, less powerful friends :) I also wonder if we should change it to
run each test in a separate process so we can more easily check the actual
memory usage.
