VERR_NO_MEMORY error while importing VirtualBox appliance in OVF format

While trying to import a VirtualBox appliance (~2.3G) in OVF format on my linux box with VirtualBox 4.0.8-71778 it ended up with the error:

Could not read OVF file ‘exported_ovf_file.ovf’ (VERR_NO_MEMORY)

To fix this, just unpack the odf file:

tar xvf exported_ovf_file.ovf

and import the unpacked ovf in VirtualBox.
