Ticket #3309 (new defect)

I have a Centos 5 Host and I install a Debian Lenny Guest. It's a 4 GB RAM/Dual Xeon Server. I create the VM with only 200 MB and when I do simple tasks (like an apt-get), I got this error.
Bellow, the tail of VBox.log and the free command. I don't understand why I have a lot of buffers and cached memory (2.5 MB) and the system can't allocate this. Have I do tune any sysctl parameters to coorect this ???
