Gnome locks up as i click inside VM

Reported by: itemirus Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: VMM
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.4 Keywords: window crash VM
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux


On a fresh install of Ubuntu Hardy , i installed Virtual Box 1.6.4 following the instructions listed at

The applications seems to run fine, but once a VM is created, launching the VM and clicking inside the VM window it locks up; the mouse pointer disappears, right-ctrl does nothing and there is no way i can get out of the VM window - all i can do is ctrl-alt-bkspace and log back in.

This bug is unrelated to the Guest OS - actually i created an empty VM machine with no hard disk and no OS but it crashed as well as soon as i clicked inside its window.

I attach some log files to study.

Please try to upgrade to 1.6.6 and try again. I don't know why those log files are appearing on your system, but they are not the "normal" programme logs, but special log files for developers which should not get created at all on your system. You can get at the "normal" log files through the "Machine" menu in the main VirtualBox application (where you create and start your virtual machines).
