Mac OS host crashes when resuming from hibernation

|Host type:||Mac OS X|
If I suspend my Macbook Pro when I have a running VM by, for example, closing the lid, I'm not able to resume from host hibernation at all. When trying to resume (possibly during the last stage of resuming) the notebook beeps a few times and at the same time the front light flashes which I think indicates a kernel panic. When this happens the only thing I can do is to force a reboot of the host by holding down the power button.
If the VM is suspended I have no problems even if the VirtualBox application is running in the background.
I've tried disabling the acceleration (VT-x) but it did not solve the problem.
I have observed this behavior in the latest version of VirtualBox (4.1.10) and also on the versions 4.1.8 and 4.1.4.
My host is running Mac OS X version 10.7.3 on a Macbook Pro with 2.8 GHz Intel Core i7 and 8GB of RAM.
A guest running directly a live CD with the latest Kubuntu is enough for me to be able to reproduce this bug.
