Comment (by chrisbliss18):

 Updated my chrisbliss18-patch.2.diff file. The update now checks for
 values of memory_limit equal to or less than -1, which allows unlimited
 memory consumption.

 I believe that this is the reason that the original code failed for me. I
 just so happened to change my php.ini file while trying to figure out the
 issue and forgot about the original setting. I verified this by resetting
 memory_limit to "-1" in my php.ini file and activating enough code to
 consume 32M of memory. This would fail while setting to "128M" would not

 My code tests for a memory_limit of -1 or less because my testing shows
 that any value of -1 or less (including values with fractional parts) will
 always be unlimited even though the documentation only says that this
 applies to values of -1. Interestingly, a value of -.5 is treated as 512K.
