Speed and Memory problems with Vista host

Am one of a few users who have noticed this issue with a Vista Host. I personally am using Vista64 Home Premium (with AMD Turion X2 TL-60 2.0 Ghz dual core), however, I have heard of people having the problem with Vista32. The issue appears when launching a vm with a Vista host. Once the vm is running, the host slows to a crawl, running so slowly that it is almost unusable. I personally have experienced this, and have also noticed that, even after I close the vm, the host continues to be unresponsive to an extreme degree, forcing a reboot to restore reasonable operation. It appears as if VBox is not properly releasing the memory used by the vm, but that is just a guess based upon the symptoms. It may simply be configuration, and something I have set wrong, but since, based upon the forum's I have reviewed, others seem to be experiencing it as well, I was advised by Terry to put in this ticket.
