Ticket #6552 (closed defect: duplicate)
Clipboard use locks up VirtualBox in some circumstances (reproduceable)

VirtualBox process freezes and renders the clipboard operations on the system unusable upon pasting data that was previously copied from inside VirtualBox process. You may find there's something else that's going on, but the exact steps to reproduce the lockup are as follows:
Start VirtualBox GUI. Start "Create New Virtual Machine Wizard" Hit Next, for VM name type "VIRBS_SERVER_MY" Select the text ("VIRBS_SERVER_MY") and hit CTRL+C (I do this as I usually paste the same name for VDI). Click Next, leave memory at default. Click Next, Create New hard disk should be as default. In the "Create New Virtual Disk Wizard" click Next, leave default "Dynamically expanding storage". Click Next, for Location of the VDI, click the browse icon/button to the right of the text box. Press CTRL+V - it should lock up.
This doesn't happen if I copy the same text from, say, Notepad.
After writing this, I realised the you can go straight to creating a new VDI.
