Linux Guest Hangs

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
During the uptime of a VM my guest Linux OS hangs seemingly randomly. Most recently it happened while running Kubuntu 10.04. I do not have Guest Additions installed, which is when this issue happens most often.
I was installing packages at the time of the hang on the host. During the hang, I can move the mouse around within the VM, but not click anything. If I was clicking something, like a button, at the moment the VM hanged, the button remains depressed.
The network and hard drive icons in the status bar of the VM window, do not change - they are idle once the hang happens. Nonetheless the USB icon lights up when I move my mouse.
It's almost as if all I/O is suspended.
