Windows 98 SE guest aborts on first reboot after install, log shows unknown command 0x2e

Description

I am trying to get Windows 98 Second Edition working as a guest OS with VirtualBox-OSE 1.5.6 under Debian-lenny (but VirtualBox upgraded from -unstable to see if this bug was already fixed).

The log has the following:

Log created: 2008-04-07T07:46:28.988455000Z Executable: /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox Arg[0]: /usr/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox Arg[1]: -comment Arg[2]: Windows 98 Second Edition Arg[3]: -startvm Arg[4]: 45d9dd7a-60cc-42f6-46b8-b59c797edd7a unknown command: 0x2e unknown command: 0x2e unknown command: 0x2e

I know 98SE isn't officially supported but some people have reported success so I was hoping that I would be able to get it working. If possible I'd like to help fix it, but it depends on what exactly the unknown command is: if it's an opcode then fixing it is probably outside my expertise; it it is an interrupt I might be able to help, and if a CD-ROM thing, I could probably spelunk the qemu code which does not exhibit this particular bug.

Even if I can't fix it myself, or someone can get to it before me, I would be happy to help with the debugging by providing more detailed logs, if there are commands for producing such.

Version 2.0.6 - the problem is there. VB crashes any time I try to boot the newly installed Win98SE. The log file follows.
