Virtualbox 2.2.4, Itunes 8.2.0 and iphone: no go

I am a happy user of virtualbox since the 1.4 days, at least. I have many uses for it, but one of the most important is to be able to use itunes to syncro my iphone. I hate this requirement, but it is a bussiness phone.
Using virtualbox 2.2.4, itunes 8.0.2 and iphone 3G 2.2.1, I can syncro the phone very slowly, but it works... most of the time.
But if I upgrade itunes to 8.1 or the new 8.2, the itunes doesn't recognize the phone. It can sense there is a iphone out there, but can not link to it.
Now some details about my environment:
My machine is pretty old. It is a Pentium 4 running at 3.6Ghz, very loaded. I am running an old SUSE version (10.0) heavily patched. My kernel is old but very patched too (2.6.13-15.18-smp). My environment in general is old but I can patched it easily (sort of). I can not upgrade to a recent distribution, nevertheless.
Do I have any hope?.
I have some AMD Opteron Solaris machines available, and I am considering to use VirtualBox there, if it is going to work better. But I rather prefer to solve the issue of my personal machine.
