This seems like the probable cause. I have opened
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1845 for this.

There was another case of out of memory error in jdbcapi junit suite
when run under derbynetclientmats which was solved by cleaning up test
objects after each test-
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1701. I thinking cleaning
up the jdbc objects in the test becomes more important as all tests
get run in same jvm.
