This is in Ubuntu 10.10 and was originally reported at  https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/virtualbox-ose/+bug/662388 - strace is available there if needed (couldn't attach it here as the file was too big)

  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to worksforme

Worked with the reporter on IRC, and he said creating the image on /tmp would just work. So it is definitely a problem with encryption (either completely broken with such big files or just so slow that one loses patience before 8G are written).
