Persistent crash building ooxmlexport4+ unit-tests on macOS 10.12.6

I'm trying to build a full checked build of core master on macOS Sierra and it looks like the ooxmlexport4 cppunit test manages to kill the macOS display manager every time on my machine. Attached system crash report to the end of this e-mail.

I'm trying to find out what could be different between my configuration and the Jenkins_MacOSX tinderbox which looks like is building just fine. The XCode kit version reported by autotools is 10.13 (just like mine) but apart from that I can't find any other build details, nor confirm that it is macOS 10.12 indeed. Can somebody point me to the build config (trying to find out if it's using LODE or otherwise) and the system details for that tinderbox?

To me, it looks like the the excessive amount of malloc'ing by the tests is halting my system (no ulimits). Manually disabling ooxmlexport4 test only gets me as far as the next one. :)

* see VSZ; and no, my diskspace isn't unlimited =)

Needless to say, has anyone else experienced this crash? The problem also looks vaguely similar to:
