Yeah, so often 'no memory' (which almost never happens in modern
systems due to the way memory allocation happens) really mean
'unexpected null pointer', so can mean literally anything.

Real out of memory conditions are much more likely to turn into the
pleasent feeling of a SIGKILL to the throat via the Kernel's OOM killer
(and, sadly quite likely to the 'wrong' process).
