BTW, I have a different but potentially related problem - after running a
head/current system for a while I am losing an ability to start VirtualBox. It
complains about something "no memory" too.
The system is amd64 with 4G of RAM with only a handful of processes started.
Maybe we got some regression in memory area (e.g. pmap)?
