Yes - I experienced this early on with first attempts at looking over 9.0 in 
a Virtualbox VM. I don't remember if it was 5 or 6GB size of the initial 
'everything in one filesystem (/)' install which triggered it, but when I 
increased it to 8GB, and/or larger, the error the OP describes went away.
