I just tried installing the 64-bit version of Win8beta on my 64-bit linux host,
and haven't quite succeeded yet.

The install actually finishes, but after rebooting into the new Win8 guest, I
can create a new user account/password, but then the "Preparing your desktop
settings" phase stops after about 30 seconds with a "problem encountered: memory
management error".

Have you or Alexey tried the 64-bit Win8 install?

I'm running vbox 4.1.2 on gentoo linux and I have Win7 working fine.
