    1 I use OpenSolaris 2009.06 running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 as my regular work environment. 
     1I use !OpenSolaris 2009.06 running on Mac OS X 10.5.8 as my regular work environment.

    33With versions 3.0.6, I've been seeing regular Virtual Machine aborts about one or two times a day.

    66Here are the symptoms. 
    7 {{{ 
    8 * Everything works great for a couple of hours (4 hours in the last case). 
    9 * All of a sudden, the VM freezes, I see the Mac OS X beachball, the VM screen vanishes and VirtualBox shows the machine to be in "Aborted" stage. 
    10 * I don't see any errors in the log (my latest log file is attched). 
    11 * When restarting the machine, there's about a 30% chance that the restarting process freezes and I need to Force Quit Virtual Box.

    1211This seems to hurt the rest of OS X: I can't regularly "Quit" other apps, but must resort to "Force Quit" them. Only a restart fixes this issue and after a restart I can also restart my VM. 
    13 * In the other, more lucky cases, the machine just starts from scratch and I can work again for about 4-5 hours.
