Hello Jeff,

Why not just analyse the heap dump with jhat or a profiler? That's the normal 
approach for investigating an OOME and you should be able to see very quickly 
what's using all the memory. There's usually little need to try and speculate 
about the problem like this or manually eyeball your code.

> Midway through the development of a new app, our
> Integration/Functional tests began failing with OOM.  -Xmx is set to
> 1024m, so there should be plenty of memory.  Our Logback test
> configuration logs to console, text file, and Lilith file.
