Windows 7 screen rotation sometimes crashes VirtualBox

I have a Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit guest VM running in VirtualBox on windows 7.

The ubuntu workspace switching command and the Windows 7 screen rotation command are the same - Control-Alt-arrow. In seamless mode I accidentally get the screen rotation if the active window is a windows program (Outlook, it's a corporate environment).

That's not a bug, the problem is that the windows screen rotation crashes virtualbox about 1 out of 5 times this happens.

I have dual monitors, one horizontal, one vertical, not sure if that is related.

The Windows 7 screen rotation hot keys are a feature of Intel Graphics control panel.

I'm going to try turning this off to work around the problem.
