My understanding is that this is similar (although less severe) than
writing log messages when out of disk space.

The report may not be generated because the resources needed to produce
the report are not available.

The absence of the report may be taken to mean that the problem is on
some other code path.

Deliberately not reporting 'out of whatever' errors or, better yet,
commenting that reporting such errors are not being generated may make
diagnosing such problems easier.
