I get this message on occasion now. The Message, "Your Mac OSX start up disk has no more space available for application memory".
I have a 1 TB HD ,799GB Available, 220GB Used. Running 10.6.2 OSX.
I have tried Onyx, repairing permissions in the disc utility, and the problem goes a way for a while but will pop up if I start running multiple apps.Rebooting seems to cure this problem for a while.
Looking for answers.

*I did try the suggestion from another user below. Did not help*

+Try booting fron your install disc. The startup disk may need repairs.+

+Insert your install disk and Restart, holding down the "C" key until grey Apple appears.+
+Go to Installer menu and launch Disk Utility.+
+Select your HDD (manufacturer ID) in the left panel.+
+Select First Aid in the Main panel.+
+(Check S.M.A.R.T Status of HDD at the bottom of right panel. It should say: Verified)+
+Click Repair Disk on the bottom right.+
+If DU reports disk does not need repairs quit DU and restart.+
+If DU reports errors Repair again and again until DU reports disk is repaired.+
+When you are finished with DU, from the Menu Bar, select Utilities/Startup Manager.+
+Select your start up disk and click Restart+

+While you have the Disk Utility window open, look at the bottom of the window. Where you see Capacity and Available. Make sure there is always 10% to 15% free disk space+

+If you cannot boot from your install disc, try booting in Safe Mode+
