Ticket #1021 (closed defect: fixed)
Windows XP Guest Crashes on Gutsy Host - Clipboard Error
|Reported by:||Tybion||Owned by:|
The Windows XP host aborts regularly while it is not being used with log error - 'vboxClipboardConvertUtf8: clipboard conversion failed. RTUtf16ToUtf8Ex() returned VERR_INVALID_UTF16_ENCODING. Abandoning.' It seems to crash when I am performing clipboard operations elsewhere in my Xubuntu session.
The host is running on Xubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy)
The last time it crashed was while I was pasting the text of the above error from a terminal window into google (using Firefox) - the paste into the google search field failed, and at the same time the Virtual Box Windows XP session crashed. After it had crashed, I then tried pasting the same message into the google search field a second time, and it worked.
I think it shouldn't be hard for you to replicate this problem, yourself. (I might be off-line for the next 2 weeks.)
