Then we would get multiple failures on every resume attempt.  However, I
tend to agree with you that data loss in any form is bad, and this is a
form of data loss.

Especially bad that it looks like a transient ENOMEM condition can cause
the data loss (that is, if I'm interpreting your log correctly, then you
can trigger this condition by temporarily consuming too much memory in
the host, trying to resume a target, then reducing memory pressure, and
try to resume again but now you've lost the state file to resume from).
