comment Suddenly Ubuntu crashes every night with oom-killer in the logs
Not all allocations can be satisfied by moving pages to swap - eg larger allocation than free swap, or the allocations in the other process may be of a type that can't be paged. Here's another question that suggests tweaking the allocator to fail the alloc rather than trying to honour it by invoking the oom handler to kill someone else.askubuntu.com/questions/161521/…

The units are pages - 4kB each so virtualbox is using ~1.3GB each

comment tar: cannot open: no such file or directory
Run file download.php... long filename omitted. This should at least tell you if you have an actual archive. A common error with wget is a login or redirect (or 404) HTML page being saved instead of the target file. Then it would not be recognised as a gzip as you are seeing.

comment Is it possible to hint Windows to bring a process completely out of swap
@Tomas I didn't get a chance to verify it - with the error happening and a very quick response I assumed nothing had happened, but then I wasn't massively overswapped at the time - I was just watching task-manager for signs of IO/unpaging. Its your rep to award and you've seen the proof. I'm convinced its the right solution assuming the app worked for you.

But yes your approach sounds good, and exactly what I was looking for.

@Kerrek, I tried compiling your code under MinGW and got errors on each read "Failed to read one byte from 0x161000, error 299 (0 bytes read)." Since I only have Windows at work I wasn't brave enough to run the random binary you attached so the problem could be in my compilation.
