        Description

        With the current implementation, the following code can trigger OOM, even though there might still be enough room to grow.

                    StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
                    sb.ensureCapacity(Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2);
                    sb.ensureCapacity(Integer.MAX_VALUE / 2 + 1);

        The exception reports:
        Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Requested array size exceeds VM limit,
         which means we tried to allocate Integer.MAX_VALUE elements array.
