Unfortunately this problem was still present as of last night, CET time.
I'm currently trying to run the Borland debugger on
dominator_tree_test.cpp, but it just crashed on me. I'll try and be more
careful next time around.

In my opinion we should tackle this problem from two sides: trying to
avoid such an unwieldy output from this test, but also ensuring that pjl
  truncates overly long line to a reasonable size. I would venture that
10KB would be a reasonable size, given how certain compilers fully
expand some template definitions.
