[Gc] Unexpected heap growth bug

I sometimes get abort "Test failed" due to "Unexpected heap growth - collector may be broken". In fact, this doesn't mean it's broken.

Sample config (not every run results in the abort) for MinGW (2 CPU cores): -DALL_INTERIOR_POINTERS -DGC_THREADS -DTHREAD_LOCAL_ALLOC -DPARALLEL_MARK
Final heap size is 86126592 bytes (for this sample).

Hans, could you relax the constraint? (Also, GC_INITIAL_HEAP_SIZE might be specified thus resulting in such abort.)
