virtual machine hangs intermittently after entering encrypted drive password

I've had problems with virtual machines hanging after entering the password for an encrypted drive. The bug manifests itself as the title bar listing the state of the virtual machine being "Paused" permanently after entering the password for the encrypted VirtualBox virtual drive. I have to forcibly power off the virtual machine and try booting it again, usually several times, until it successfully boots. I have not tried on different hosts. Previously I was using guest-based drive encryption, and it was only when switching to virtual drive encryption in VirtualBox itself where the problem started manifesting itself.
