sata link hard resets on linux host when starting winxp guest with sata controller

I'm running Vbox 2.1.4 on debian linux kernel 188.8.131.52 with a SI3114 Sata controller. As soon as I start my WinXp guest with Sata controller config I experience quite frequent sata link hard resets showing in my hosts's syslog.
kernel: ata1: hard resetting link kernel: ata1: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 310) kernel: ata1.00: configured for UDMA/33 kernel: ata1: EH complete
There is no effect visible on the guest except for performance degradation due to the sata link resets and of course if the host crashes due to that.
Any idea what might be the reason or how to further investigate that problem ? I'd exclude the hardware bits as I've all swapped them with no effect and now finally came to notice the coincidence with the Virtualbox guest running or not.
There's no logfiles or coredumps to provide as the host system either keeps running or just stops responding to anything.
