I don't recall it, but XZ is pretty heavy on GC pressure.  Given that
our XZ implementation is a very thin layer on top of XZ for Java there
wouldn't be anything we could do - apart from increasing the heap size
for the tests - anyway.

Strange.  Why would Clirr create different reports?  We're supposed to
be using the same versions of Clirr, aren't we?

Can you make your Clirr reports available so we can evaluate whether we
should fix those additional errors in a second RC?
