This is predictable bug, based on syntax used in admin_menu and already reported two bugs:
#1107770: Mollom: Maximum function nesting level of '400' reached, aborting! in tests/mollom.test on line 83
#1105064: FileField: Test: Fatal error: Maximum function nesting level of '400' reached, aborting! in filefield.test with PHP 5.3

3.x and master contain following code:

call_user_func_array(array($this, 'parent::setUp'), array_merge(array('admin_menu'), $args));
which is nesting/crashing with PHP 5.3.

It should be replaced to:


as 1.x has it.
call_user_func_array('parent::setUp', $modules);

Keep in mind that when you do this: function setUp($modules = array()) {

that all your inherited classes also need to use setUp($module = array()) in their definition otherwise it causes strict errors on PHP 5.3...
