My memory is actually already set to -Xmx512m (our application requires 
this sort of memory limit for exactly this sort of reason) and the DOC 
file is only about 170kB (I've opened and extracted text from 8MB DOC 
files without any issues in the past couple of days.)

The test .doc file on the bug tracker gives NegativeArraySizeException, 
which may even be the same issue: creating an array with -5 elements 
versus creating an array with a billion elements... both fairly likely 
to happen with scrambled data.
