I tried the test case on master branch. I ran the test case on 1GB RAM Linux based digitalocean droplet to have the script killed. Please find the results as below : 

# Python build

# Test case 

➜  cpython git:(master) ✗ cat

from email.message import EmailMessage
from email.policy import default

policy = default # max_line_length = 78
msg = EmailMessage()
msg["Subject"] = "á"*100
policy.fold("Subject", msg["Subject"])
