yes, the hang was caused by vboxmouse.sys, you can disable it to get rid of this issue.
I have submitted a pacth that fixed this. The patch is checked into latest svn.

Has anyone else had problems with guest additions 4.1.2 and 4.1.4 on
(specifically) Windows 7 guests?

I find that the guest hangs forever while shutting down after installing
the guest additions.  If I 'reset' the hung guest machine, it then hangs
forever during the next boot at the splash screen stage.

Reverting guest additions to 4.1.0 fixes the problem.  (Linux host, BTW.)
