The above log at the best tell me there is something wrong with VGA adapter. The line

00:00:10.976282 GUI: User requested to power VM off on Guru Meditation.

is NOT in my eyes any kind of error message. Please prefix it with "Error:". Further change it to:

Error: GUI: User requested to power VM off on Guru Meditation. Possibly another software grabbed access to CPU virtualziation functions. Either KVM, Avast Antivirus (https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=105661), Linux LXC container or other is running in the background.

Thank you.

Hi martin_gentoo,

We just released a new version of VirtualBox today. This issue should be fixed there. Closing it. Please leave a comment if it is still actual for you. As usual, builds are available on Downloads page. Thank you for reporting.
