So the new test is in https://github.com/qgis/QGIS/pull/2751.
Main problem is that parsing does NOT happen upfront but only when needed, so it takes forcing a call like "exportToWkt" to trigger memory errors.
I don't know if different code paths trigger different WKB parsing, which would be very hard to debug.
