Since the upgrade from 5.0.10 to 5.0.12, my Windows guests don't boot anymore.

I get a segfault:

[  543.463318] vboxdrv: ffffffffa056b020 VMMR0.r0

I run VirtualBox on a Debian Wheezy server in headless mode.

This is related to the audio controller.

I had audio="alsa", but setting audio to none (VBoxManage modifyvm $VM_NAME --audio none) fix the problem.
