I'm experiencing the same problem Virtual box 3.0.4, Guest additions 3.0.4 Host: Window Vista Guest: Fedora Core 6

I started downloading of a 600Mb file on guest to shared folder with wget. After downloading of about 200Mb connection was lost. I restarted downloading in continue mode (wget key -c) and found that new data are written from position = 2 * size_of_already_downoaded_piece, i.e. file looked as 200 Mb of data, 200 Mb of zeros, new data. Since continue mode works fine on regular folders, it is supposedly shared folders bug

In addition, when downloading progress was about 90%, my PC slowed down. I ignored this fact and continued working but when file was downloaded and I checked its size it was 7.5Gb.

I had similar problems. My last update to VirtualBox 3.0.12 solved the problems (see also  #3805).
