VirtualBox v3.0.6 lock up with high network traffic => fixed in SVN

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.0.6||Keywords:||network system lock up|
Solaris Host : Dual Opteron 2218, 16GB RAM, 850GB sata disk, Supermicro H8DAE-2 motherboard
Installed VirtualBox 3.0.6 on my dual opteron system running Solaris 10 u5 and run a variety of Vbox, WinXP, SXCE b121 and not had any crashes or lock ups after nearly two hours. The updated AdditionsCD works correctly with SXCE b121 so that mouse interaction is seamless.
Initially my SXCE b121 VBox was configured with 2 cpus but I noticed that this was significantly slower than running under v2.2.4 with a single cpu. Reduced the number for cpus from 2 to 1 and restarted SXCE b121 and found that performance improved significantly. Have been running WinXP and SXCE b121 for around 5 hours, now started RedHat 4 the system is stable. Each of the VBox is configured to use Bridging. Please note that I have USB disabled in all VBox. I have been playing tv and radio content from the BBC as well as this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGjiKrMO-7I So far, everything is working well.
Reproduced system lock up!! When trying to transfer around 10GB of files from Host to VBox client (both CentOS 5 and SXCE b121) the transfer rate using scp became slower and slower. Killed CentOS 5 transfer and tried with SXCE b121 this reached around 90% and then all VBox locked up but system still responsive, could switch between workspaces then eventually it froze and everything stopped.
