VBox hangs trying to save state from the command line

Reported by: brihuega Owned by:
Priority: major Component: VM control
Version: VirtualBox 3.2.10 Keywords: savestate hang
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Linux


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.

The command:

$ VBoxManage controlvm Windows savestate
Oracle VM VirtualBox Command Line Management Interface Version 3.2.10
(C) 2005-2010 Oracle Corporation
All rights reserved.


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.
