windows xp guest takes a long time to boot after reboot

I know I have a ticket open on this issue somewhere, but the lack of ability to just search for one's own tickets leaves me unable to find it. So a new ticket...

Using VB 2.1.2 (this has existed for many versions however) on Linux with a Windows XP guest, the first boot of WinXP after a reboot of the host (or a reloading of the VB modules) goes relatively quickly. However if I reboot the guest, on boot up, it takes very long to get to fully booted again.

If I unload the virtualbox modules between the shutdown and startup however it boots relatively quickly again.

I will attach a log of one of these post-reboot long boots. Note that in this one, the guest seems to have "Abort"ed at the end. I don't know if this is typical or not as I tend to not wait the almost two hours for one of these post-reboot boots to complete.
