Yes, this does indeed look similar to that problem report and the
mail thread refrenced therein.
Going back to my own submission I find:
127927 VM pages: 76357 active, 38080 inactive, 2422 wired, 7 free
pages 73990 anon, 37343 file, 4129 exec
swpages=128000, swpginuse=128000, swpgonly=127997, paging=0
so I'm actually also out of virtual memory, since all swap pages
are in use. However, "something" ought to be able to find a
victim to kill or do something else (steal an exec page?, or
steal a non-modified anon page, if there are any...), but, yes, I
guess this is the well-known problem that NetBSD doesn't behave
quite robustly when running out of virtual memory...
