Description

I'm running VirtualBox 1.6.2 on Ubuntu 8.04 x64 host with Windows XP (32-bit) guest with enabled shared clipboard feature. And it works quite well... for some time. Then, after some usage it occidentally starts to insert junk on paste instead of copied text. I could copy text again and it will likely be pasted correctly after this. Then, after some time it will insert junk instead of text again, and so on. Some times junk is only at the beginning of the text, that is only first couple of characters are corrupted, sometimes it is just few junk symbols, Corrupted symbols does not look like ASCII chars, so it is likely that buffer is overwritten with some binary data. And finally, after several corruptions shared clipboard stops operating at all. Internal host and guest buffers work just as expected, but they're independent from now on. Reboot solves this problem for a while again. VirtualBox log with relevant errors attached.
