Win-XPpro 64 - drag file in guest causes the guest to freeze and host CPU to 180+%

Reported by: Perryg Owned by:
Priority: blocker Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

Possible regression since I don't remember seeing this in previous versions.

Start the guest and after it settles down open the files explorer and click on a file and start to move it. The guest freezes an host processor hit the ceiling. If you turn the processor count down to 1 the guest simply reboots itself. You don't have to actually try to drop it just start to move it.

Log file attached after the issue occured.

Log file from Windows XP x64 drag and drop reboot

comment:1 Changed 3 years ago by bob3248

I submitted another log file from a Windows XP x64 guest rebooting when attempting to drag and drop a text file from the root of the c drive to a folder on the c drive.

This issue only happens if the guest additions are installed.

Host: Windows 7 SP1 64bit VirtualBox 4.1.2 Guest: Windows XP Pro SP2 64bit, clean install, default VirtualBox options except 1GB RAM, using VT-x acceleration

I have tracked this down to the 4.1.* Guest additions. Using 4.0.12 it works but 4.1.0 or 4.1.2 it fails. All you need to do is try to move an icon on the desktop. I also verified that this guest has never had the 3D drivers installed and all the d3d files are original MS. Except for the annoying reminder to upgrade I don't really see a problem running the 4.0.12 GAs for now.

2 additional observations of this bug in WinXP-64bit and Win7-64bit guests:

---

Host = Ubuntu 10.10 x64
Guest = WinXP Pro x64 bit Edition w/ SP2
VirtualBox = 4.1.2 with current Guest Additions and Oracle Extensions
This is a simple Guest definition: 1024 MB memory, 1 CPU, no 2D or 3D video enabled, a single Bridged network adapter, no host filesharing, bidirectional clipboard enabled, no special software or drivers installed.

Problem = Trying to drag and drop files in Windows caused the Guest to freeze requiring a manual powerdown via the VBox console.

---

Host = Ubuntu 10.10 x64
Guest = Win 7 x64
VirtualBox = 4.1.2 with current Guest Additions and Oracle Extensions, 2048 MB memory, 2 CPU, 2D video, no 3D video, a single Bridged network adapter mapped to the ethernet NIC, no host filesharing, bidirectional clipboard enabled, no special software or drivers installed.

Problem = I can 100% consistently freeze the Windows 7 64bit guest as soon as I mouse over the iDrive utility (www.idrive.com, version 3.4.1, free download). Leaving the utility running without mousing over it does not invoke the freeze. I tried changing many VM settings, one at a time, and nothing prevents the freezing of the guest upon mousing over the application. However, when I revert from Guest Additions 4.1.2 back to Guest Additions 4.0.12, mousing over the iDrive utility no longer freezes the guest and everything works fine. (Dragging and dropping files in this Windows 7 guest is ok.)

Preliminary tests show that Version 4.1.4 with guest additions resolve this issue.
