Ok back to this bug. I decided that on x86_64 linuxes (and ia32 which 
don't have a stack limit for some reason) we need to at least fix the 
test so that it doesn't make OS unusable. I've modified StackTest to 
check firt 10,000,000 recursions and fail is SOE is not thrown. The 
patch is available in HARMONY-2175.
