WXP guest neither "Saved" nor "Running"

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)


tried to save the state of a WXP SP2 guest (Guest additions installed), but it entered a "middle" state between Saving and Saved, and remained so until I killed the VB process manually a few minutes later. There was NO error message issued by VB GUI; the VB GUI (except for the window of the guest) was responsive and X was fine too.

The guest was idle before I tried to save state. No other guests running at that time.

Host is Ubuntu 9.04, kernel 2.6.28-11-generic #42-Ubuntu SMP Fri Apr 17 01:57:59 UTC 2009 i686 GNU/Linux

Host was, too, almost idle at the time.

VB had issued some warning message about pulse audio issue (mic capture) on the host, but I was not at all using microphone in either host or guest. The message is in the attached VB log. The Guest has an active sound card mapped to pulseaudio, indeed, but was definitely not playing or recording.

Attached are the log and a png screenshot.

The problem has occurred only once so far.
