Segfault at trying to run a Virtual Machine

I'm using a Debian system (Lenny version) with the x86_64 based kernel 2.6.22-3-amd64. I've installed VirtualBox 1.5.4 and all seems to run fine until I try to open a Virtual Machine, then I get a flash and the status showed under the VM name change to "Aborted". The system is not installed yet. Locking the /var/log/messages file, I get the next:

Jan 19 14:58:00 Aragorn kernel: vboxdrv: Trying to deactivate the NMI watchdog permanently...
Jan 19 14:58:00 Aragorn kernel: vboxdrv: Successfully done.
Jan 19 14:58:00 Aragorn kernel: vboxdrv: Successfully loaded version 1.5.4 (interface 0x00050002).
Jan 19 15:06:44 Aragorn kernel: VirtualBox[6577]: segfault at 0000000000000028 rip 00002b64dd0d16ee rsp 00007fffcdf69d90 error 4

Curiosly, if I run VirtualBox as root, it works right, but the other user is member of "vboxusers" group.

Any idea to solve the problem? Thank you Enhy
