BSOD while installing USB device drivers in XP guest (and Linux host with VBox 3.0.12)

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have a Windows XP 32-bit guest running on VBox 3.0.12 and 64-bit OpenSuse 11.1 host.
Several times when I've tried installing USB device drivers, I get a blue screen of death (screen dump included). No minidump file is created even though it's enabled. I first experienced this after installing drivers for my Wacom drawing tablet. In this case, I didn't even attach the Wacom to the guest OS, just ran the driver installation program (as instructed by Wacom). In the middle of driver installation the guest crashed and rebooted. During rebooting the same crash occurred again and again. I included a VBOx log of this.
I experienced the same also when I attached my Sandisk memory card reader to the guest OS. The reader does not require extra drivers. In that case, sometimes I've managed to get the reader working, sometimes XP complains that driver installation was not successful. When I tried to reinstall the drivers using XP Add Hardware Wizard, I got the same BSOD and crash. I've also included a log of this incident.
