Ticket #7526 (closed defect: obsolete)
VBox crashes within minutes of running

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm almost afraid to start any virtual machine now for fear of vm corruption because VB seems to crash just doing anything on my computer. Be it Starting a vm, stopping a vm, the vm just running (any guest) or even just trying to open/close the Virtual Media Manager, VB will crash. It doesn't happen instantly, but it will always happen within a few minutes of VB being launched. I can't seem to pinpoint a single reason as to why this happens.
My computer: MacBook Pro 5,5 (Mid-2009) 4GB of RAM Snow Leopard 10.6.4 with the 64-bit kernel activated VirtualBox 3.2.8
This has been happening since 3.1 (or whatever was recent in Jan. 2010)
Guests do not have to be running. The VirtualBox program itself can crash, a vm can crash, or they'll both crash.
Attached is a list of crashes from VirtualBox and VirtualBoxVM, along with the VBox.log of the last guest that crashed (Fedora 13 32-bit). Crashed happened when I tried to enter seamless mode. I can be doing anything to trigger a crash.
