Host CPU utilization is 100% when guest is idle

I am running VirtualBox 1.3.8 on a Windows XP host (with SP2 and latest updates). I have installed Fedora 6 as a guest. All seems to be fine except that the host (Windows XP) is at 100% cpu usage even though the guest is idle. I have also created another guest (Redhat Enterprise 5) and the same thing happens. I have repeated this same problem both on my home system and my machine at work.

I can confirm this. This always happens (9 out of 10) when I hibernate the session and then trying to resume: processor is going to 100%, nothing is responding. A hard reboot solves the problem.

This only happens with Linux guests, be it Ubuntu Edgy, Feisty, server or desktop. Windows XP as a guest pauses and resumes as expected. Linux guests seems to be the problem.

Running Ubuntu Edgy as host.
