Bogus Error: VM Paused because of lack of disk space

I've had a recurring problem.   The server is just suddenly not working.  I go the host machine and see a message saying the VM has been paused because of lack of disk space.    This is not true -- the host machine has over 400GB free!  (it's a 500GB drive with not much on it) and the VM is setup as a 40GB drive and still has 33GB free. 

Yet, this is the third time it's happened...   every few weeks it just STOPS.   But if I physically go to the host machine and click "Continue" on said error message, then everything just continues along happy and fine and the VM re-engages.
