Slow Performance on NTFS Partitions if Using Linux Host

Description

When Running VirtualBox on a Linux Host with NTFS 3G installed, in my case Ubuntu 7.04, with the VDI file located on a NTFS partition there is a dramatic decrease in performance.

Example: Running Windows updates it takes 60 minutes using a VDI file located on an NTFS partition. Those Same Updates using the same VDI file located on an EXT3 Partition takes 15 minutes.

In Previous Versions, there was no performance degration when running VirtualBox on a Linux Host with the VDI file located on an NTFS partition.

I kind of doubt that's a VBox problem. Don't use NTFS partitions from Linux. It is known to cause problems. The FS driver appears to be quite unstable.
