One will get OOM Exceptions if there is insufficient native memory to  
satisfy a Java request.  For instance, when creating a thread, the OS  
has to allocate some native memory to create the Java Object. If that  
native allocation fails you will get an OOM even though you have  
plenty of heap memory.
