XP VM freezes host on Linux kernel 3.5. Fine on 3.4.

Running Sabayon Linux 10 on a 12 proc 24G box, which normally would be running Kernel 3.5 about now... but after upgrading to 3.5, reinstalling VB modules, and starting an XP VM... VB will hang my system; no blank screen, just frozen. This has occured with 4.1.20 as well as 4.2. I have managed to boot a very simple XP session and bring it back down (I have yet to see how long it can run before freezing the box tho) but one XP VM in particular, my most important one go figure, will consistantly hang the system with the windoze status bar still going. Main differences between the 2 VMs are CPU: 2 vs 8, Mem: 2G vs 8G and USB access to a card reader. Backing off to 3.4 and everthing works great. Nothing in the logs. I'm befuddled.
