Bluescreen on reboot

As of 3.0.4, possibly 3.x, any XP Pro SP3 virtual machine can not be rebooted. If you reboot, it will constantly bluescreen and restart until you terminate it. You must shut down and do a cold start. This was not a problem in previous versions. These are the same virtual machines since 2.2.x. Something was introduced in a recent virtualbox version that causes reboots to be impossible without a bluescreen.
