Copy or paste in the create snapshot dialogue field causes virtualbox admin interface to freeze

Reported by: whatdoesitwant Owned by:

Host type: Windows


Do not try to paste in description information when creating a snapshot from a running virtualbox. It will cause the virtualbox interface to freeze up. Fortunately, the virtualbox main interface process can be killed and running guests can still be closed without damage. Similar effect can be achieved with a copy action.

This issue is not a shared clipboard issue but a host clipboard issue.

That is a known issue, see #4491. That bug will be fixed in the next major release (not a maintenance release) as the fix is quite invasive.
