Have you run unlimit, or your shell's equivalent?

If that is not the issue a quick way to add 256m swap could be to run
dd if=/dev/zero of=/var/swap bs=1m count=256 progress=1
Then chmod it 600, add it to fstab & swapctl to add it (or reboot).

Alternatively could it be that samba need shared memory & that is failing?
If you ktrace -id samba & then kdump the generated files you should be
able to see what system call failed (close to the end :)
