VboxService.exe goes zombie in winXP

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
Since v4.0.0, the application daemon VBoxService.exe faults in some way that makes it act like a zombie process. Any other process currently running, e.g. Photoshop 6, exhibits a hang, presumably waiting for VBoxService.exe which never responds. The application must be forced to quit.
When logging out, VBoxService.exe must be forced to quit ("Application not responding. End Task?"). All is well after logging back in.
The only thing in the Event Viewer is that the original program hung.
