When switching the network adapter, Windows XP guest freezes if free memory is low

My Windows XP Prof. guest system freezes frequently when switching the network adapter between "Bridged adapter" and "NAT" when free memory is low. The host system is Mac OS Lion 10.7.5. Since I have to connect to different networks, switching the network adapter is necessary, and often this results in a forced reboot of the guest system. This has already happened in earlier VirtualBox versions.

Thanks for your help.

Could you please attach the log file? And what do you mean by "a forced reboot"? What or who initiate it?

The log file has been attached. The user has to restart the system manually, because the guest operating system is frozen.

log doesn't report any issues, so could you please look at wiki:Core_dump and do "force" core dump generation, when VirtualBox looks like "frozen" ?

Actually I would prefer if you could attach a VBox.log file from a VM session where you saw such a hanging guest.
