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 xz.

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