VBox hangs trying to save state from the command line

When I save the state of a guest machine from the GUI, it works OK, but trying it from the command line hangs all machines and I must kill all the remaining VBox processes to continue using VBox.
$ VBoxManage controlvm Windows savestate Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.10 (C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation All rights reserved. 0%...
I have to CTRL-C, close all the guest machines windows and kill all processes:
$ ps -ef|grep VB brihuega 3189 1 0 09:28 tty1 00:00:00 /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxXPCOMIPCD brihuega 3198 1 0 09:28 ? 00:00:00 /opt/VirtualBox/VBoxSVC --pipe 10 --auto-shutdown $ kill 3189 3198
Then I can run VBox again. The state of the guest machines is lost.
These are the system data:
Linux d*****i 2.6.35-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Aug 27 17:14:28 CEST 2010 x86_64 Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5400 @ 2.70GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
The system distro is ArchLinux.
VBox version: VirtualBox-3.2.10-66896-Linux_amd64
Guest machine system doesn't matter. I've tryed with Windows XP, Windows 7, Ubuntu, 32 and 64 bits, etc. with the same problem.
Log file attached.
