But we wouldn't know that SOE has happened or not if test passes even 
when SOE was not thrown.

It seems like SuSE9 is the only existing distribution which doesn't 
limit stack size on 64-bit architectures. SuSE10 has this limit and 
Gentoo has it too. Should we care that this test fails on SuSE9 when it 
passes on all other platforms and SOE is known to be thrown?
