Confirmed. Windows 64-bit host problem. Actually related to #8005 -- same problem even if it sounds different. But I will keep this ticket open.

Just out of curiosity - does the same (deleting a snapshot while the VM is running, 64bit windows host) work with VirtualBox 3.2? It uses pretty much the same code, and thus should also crash.

I wonder why no one reported this before, could be that 64bit windows is simply gaining lots of users lately.

Will mark this as a duplicate of #8349 (yes, your ticket is older but anyway...)

To be more verbose: This sounds different but both tickets have the same cause (Windows 64-bit hosts only).
