Increase $MAX_LOOP so that each loop runs for longer, then execute while
top is running. This will show (on 5.12.x) that the first two tests use
constant virtual memory, while the third test sees quickly increasing VM.

However, it appears to have been fixed sometime between 5.16.0 and 5.18.0

Never do today what you can put off till tomorrow.
