I have written a reproducible testcase (in python).  So there is no
*if*, only *when*.

You need:
1. python 2.6.6 (bitness must match Windows host)
2. pyWin v216 (bitness must match Windows host)
3. vboxtestcase (that I wrote. It is set to 100 iterations, so will
stuck sooner or later)

No guarantee that we observe same scenario ofc.
