[racket] call-with-limits not failing gracefully

I have a 64-bit machine and OS with 16GB RAM. I have some benchmarks that I want to time out after an hour or die if they use 4GB memory.

Unfortunately, the entire VM dies with OOM instead of carrying on. I'm running from the terminal. Is there some other option I need to pass to not limit the VM's overall memory? Xubuntu has as default that processes can use as much memory as they want, last time I checked.
