Computer unceremoniously reboots when exceeding Virtual Memory

In hrev2046 I mentioned that the message given when running out of physical memory (vfork() error) was a bit cryptic. When you reach the end of Virtual Memory it's worse - the computer simply reboots.
To test this, use a computer with < 640Mb memory and try to build the source tree within Haiku, using a VM size of about 500Mb or less.
Friendly messages about available memory being almost exceeded would be great.
