VirtualBox 3.1.6 cannot boot from vmdk larger than 2GB

I tried to boot from a harddisks, which are 6GB and 8GB (one whole-disk partition), on VirtualBox 3.1.6 on Mac OS X 10.6.3, and got:

!!Assertion Failed!! Expression: uOffset + cbRead <= pDisk->cbSize Location : /Users/vbox/tinderbox/3.1-mac-rel/src/VBox/Devices/Storage/VBoxHDD.cpp(2711) int VDRead(VBOXHDD*, uint64_t, void*, size_t) uOffset=8585740288 cbRead=512 pDisk->cbSize=8585740288

The problem does not occur when I switch back to VirtualBox 3.1.4. Boot partitions which are 2 GB in size, start up properly.
