Ticket #2411 (closed defect: fixed)
Unpredictable, but repeatable VirtualBox crash - WinXP guest, browsing UNC => Fixed in 2.0.4
|Reported by:||myxiplx||Owned by:|
The crash appears very intermittent as I can usually do this dozens of times with no problems, but eventually something seems to kill VirtualBox. Unfortunately it's going to be hard to reproduce as the first time it happened after the guest was running for two days, the second time it had been running for nearly four days.
The crash was caused by:
- click Start
- click Run
- Enter a UNC path (the two causing crashes for me were both of the form \machine\c$)
- Click Go
At this point VirtualBox instantly crashes and I'm left with a blank screen (in Fullscreen mode). Pressing Host+F takes me back to the main VirtualBox GUI, with a grey screen where my WinXP guest should be.
I attempted to do an ACPI shutdown of the guest (just in case it was a GUI issue), but the Virtualbox interface closed immediately when I did that, making me think the guest had in fact crashed completely.
I have the Virtualbox logs from both crashes if they are of any use, and I originally posted this on the forums here: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?p=41694#41694
I'm running VirtualBox on Ubuntu 8.04 (with all patches to around 1st Oct), and my guest is Windows XP pro SP2.
