iMac Core i3 running OS X 10.6.7 host system freezes

My iMac Core i3 running Mac OS X freezes when running openSUSE 11.4 under Virtualbox 4.0.4 with the 4.0.5 pre-release guest additions installed, requiring a reboot. (X and GDM won't start during boot up with the 4.0.4 guest additions installed, but the host system does not freeze.) This version of openSUSE is utilizing the Tumbleweed repository, which in effect makes it a rolling release. It is running version 126.96.36.199-20-default of the kernel and version 1.9.3 of Xorg. I have the same openSUSE 11.4 system (i.e., same kernel and Xorg) configured on a work machine running Windows 7 and Virtualbox 4.0.4 with 4.0.4 guest additions, and everything works fine. Just thought I'd give you a heads up since there appears to be a problem under Mac OS. If I can provide additional information, please let me know. Thanks.
