VM Windows crash using Oracle development tools and Guest Additions

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have been asked by the forum moderator to raise this as a bug.
I currently run Virtual Box on a Windows 7 Home Premium (64 Bit) host. I believe this issue to be present in the latest release 4.1.2 and the previous release.
I have a VM running Windows 7 (64 Bit) with the following software installed:
Java SDK 6 U11 64Bit. Oracle SQL Data Modeller 3 64Bit. Oracle SQL Developer 3 64Bit. Virtual Box Guest Additions.
When using Oracle SQL developer, I have noticed that random actions (e.g. opening up the hierarchy tree in the connection manager) can cause the VM to freeze and reboot. Upon rebooting, the VM will not start up properly and requires the VM to be completely stopped and restarted before the guest OS will work again. Upon the restarting of Windows it reports that it has recovered from a serious error (BSOD). As it doesn't happen all of the time I have come to live with this issue.
Today I installed Oracle SQL Data Modeller and this causes Windows to crash (BSOD) in exactly the same way as Oracle SQL developer but using this application it can be reproduced 100%. After creating two entities in the logical modeller, attempt to create a relationship between them and then the OS freezes and reboots.
I have tried a number of JDK versions and Windows updates to attempt to cure the problem but no success. In final desperation, I un-installed the guest additions and the SQL data modeller software worked without a OS crash. Re-installing the guest additions makes the problem come back.
Has anyone experienced this type of issue with the Oracle Java applications? The workaround is to use the VM without Guest Additions but it would be nice to get this fixed in a future release or patch.
