"Repl ran out of Resources" message doesn't pop up/pops up at the wrong time

Problem description:
A while back (or really just two days ago), I got this message:


Which you can tell, I did not run out of resources. Which was weird, so I brushed it off, thinking it had just run out of memory overnight. But today, I saw this:

And guess what? It didn’t show the message! Amazing, right?

Expected behavior:
It shows the message now/whenever my memory exceeds the amount that I have for that repl.

Actual behavior:
It shows when I don’t need it, or when it there’s nothing actually wrong.

Steps to reproduce:
I have no idea what to put here, but:

  1. Run out of memory or just have an insane amount of luck.

Bug appears at this link:
The bug appears at any repl.

Browser: Firefox 113.0

OS: macOS Catalina

Device: iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2012) - 2.9 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 - 8GB 1600 MHz DDR3 - NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 512MB


That’s me too, you’re not alone.


The message appeared even though you didn’t not exceed the resources because the message appeared just before the resources graph updates, which shows why it seems that you didn’t exceed the resources

I think the message appears only if the machine’s memory has been exceeded, not including the cache on your computer.


I’m bringing this back up because of this:

which you can clearly exceeds the limit (781 MB for the repl, 4 MB from Cache Memory). Even though, I still didn’t recieve the message. Please help me solve this problem! :sob:

The message will appear only once, probably to not be too disruptive or distracting when you are coding.
