Virtualbox 2.2.4 GUI segmentation fault in linux (ubuntu 9.04) 64bit

Description

The gui crashes with a segfault upon launching...

if i comment out a line in the .VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml file the problem doesn't happen.

it first happened when i close virtualbox, detached an external usb hard drive containing some VDIs, and reopened virtualbox (this shouldn't be a problem, since the macosx version doesn't crash, neither linux version if i tweak the VirtualBox.xml)

this is the VirtualBox.xml segment:

if i change it to:

VirtualBox starts fine...

I installed VirtualBox from the  http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian repository

I'll attach: VirtualBox.xml
a .7z compressed core dump (18MB down to 992kB)
the VBox.log of the last VM run before the segmentation faults

log of the last VM run

comment:1 Changed 5 years ago by Tiibiidii

installed virtualbox3 and the problem persists... but i've noticed that the gui crashes only when selecting (clicking) the VM that started the problem, so virtualbox crashes on startup if the last VM selected on a clean exit was this problematic VM... but otherwise it starts fine...

this is only a GUI problem: with "VBoxManage startvm" i managed to start the VM just fine...
