Virtualbox running Windows XP + Skype 22.214.171.124 on a Opensolaris 2008.11 host = Slow Mode

I have a Guest Windows XP machine with 512MB of memory and 128MB of video running in a Virtualbox hosted on a Opensolaris 2008.11 with VT-X/ADM-V enabled.
I installed the Skype version (188.8.131.52) which is the best to run inside the Virtual Machine and all Windows updates but then the problem starts.
I can use Skype for like 10 minutes and then the system begin to slow down until a point where I can't do a thing instead of closing it because no commands are acceptable from that point.
I've tried using a VM with a Windows without any updates but I got the same problem. I also tried to raise the memory of the machine to 1GB but I got nothing.
The solution I got it was to downgrade to VirtualBox 2.0.2 which is running now without any problem until now.
Do you guys have any idea? Or else I can continue using 2.0.2 but I thought I could use the new release.
