Save the *Warning* buffer..

recently i saw something i had never seen before ..  on this eventful
day, my (length load-history) had reached 295...  And up popped a
buffer displaying a warning: "Almost out of memory... quit ASAP..."[2]

i have seen some sort of warning once before too...

the problem was that in both cases, i pressed SPC or something[1], and
the buffer disappeared before i had read it..  Trying to C-x b to this
buffer didn't help because the buffer no longer existed..

i suggest that when emacs wants to remove this buffer (like, when i
pressed SPC)---

instead of removing this buffer, it be renamed to "*Warnings-old*
buffer...  so that one can access it again...

[1] reminds you of a windows user who's too used to pressing 'ok',
doesn't it? :)

[2] on a related note, is there some frobbing i can do to stop this
from happening---like increasing the memory available to emacs
perhaps?  If you are replying to this question, please FUT g.e.help ..
