That's a bit weird, it works pretty smoothly here. I just successfully 
booted windows xp and redhat enterprise linux 4 here.

A gdb backtrace could be helpful, especially from an unoptimized build 
(kmk BUILD_TYPE=debug && cd 
out/darwin.x86/debug/dist/VirtualBox/Content/MacOS/ && gdb --args 
./VBoxBFE .... ).

That's the same as I'm using here.
