Report the problem to your OS vendor or VM vendor?  I'd be almost 
certain that the 'minimal example' does not involve R.  Most likely 
the problem is with how the VM reports memory usage/availability to 

(FWIW I have built and tested R under several OSes under VirtualBox, 
including Fedora 12 i686 and FreeBSD 8.2 amd64.)
