Setting query_cache_size to larger values might fail depending on the memory pressure being put on the system. This can be seen on pushbuild as the test case query_cache_size_basic tries to allocate a +3GB query cache, which succeeds in some machines and fails in others.

How to repeat:
Sporadic failures of test cases query_cache_size_basic_32 and query_cache_size_basic_64 on PB.

As I have not found that bug I reported another one Bug#38164, for which a patch is queued. So it is a duplicate of that bug.

It is not a duplicate, as that bug is for "query_prealloc_size".

transaction_prealloc_size_basic_32 and transaction_prealloc_size_basic_64 also doing this
