I suspected it might be due to display-time-interval that was too
short (1), and turned back it to the default (60) about a month ago.
It didn't help after all, though.  Here is my Emacs clock setting:

(setq display-time-default-load-average nil
      display-time-24hr-format t)
;;(setq display-time-interval 1
;;      display-time-format "%H:%M:%S")
(display-time-mode 1)

It happens unexpectedly when I do something on Emacs, so I cannot
show a reproducible recipe.  But the frequency of this is much
less than the following:

Actually while I was writing this mail, "Memory exhausted" happened
only once, but the freezing happened for over ten times. :<

I'm encouraged with you and the active users anyway.  Thanks.
