Windows XP Guest video hangs

|Version:||VirtualBox 2.0.2||Keywords:||Windows XP guest video hang|
I've run into this problem on both Linux (CentOS 5.2 and Ubuntu 8.04) and MacOS X. For no apparent reason, I will leave a Windows XP guest (SP2) running in vb2.0.2 and at some point the video (either directly using the GUI or headless with VRDP), will hang and becomes completely unresponsive to input. The only way to correct is to power off the guest and restart. I've attached the log and a screenshot of what it looks like.
The problem is that the timeframe for this to occur is extremely variable. On the CentOS host running the same (i.e. cloned) guest may exhibit this behavior in hours to weeks (literally). On the Mac it also happens but usually less that 24hrs from guest start. Same exact issues, and unfortunately the same exact resolution is required.
If you need anymore info, glad to help. --Jason.
