This is a bug report from VirtualBox 3.0.2 r49928 on Ubuntu 9.04 (jaunty) amd64. When I try to add a new virtual partition with VirtualBox -> Virtual Partition Manager -> Add... The file selector is displayed but the system (X11?) freezes after this. A host system reboot is necessary afterwards...

I tracked down the problem to be triggered by running a r5xx graphic card with radeonhd *and* DRI enabled. If you disable DRI, the problem goes away. Hence (probably) this is not a VirtualBox problem (but I'm still not aware of any other Linux programs that trigger this X11 freeze).

I fear we cannot do anything about this, never saw such a problem.
