Linux host crashing with VirtualBox 4.0.12 and 4.1.2

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm running a Win7 (32-bit) guest. Repeatedly my system (host) will restart within 24 hours if I leave VirtualBox running. The system does not restart if VirtualBox is not running. This happens with 4.0.12 and 4.1.2 (I have not verified with other versions, but I think 4.1.0 was also broken). It's bad enough that anything is crashing, but it is unacceptable that it is crashing the host.
As far as I can tell, there is no information in any logs. The only data I see in the VirtualBox logs are a few DHCP offerings. There is nothing in the /var/log/messages or /var/log/dmesg logs. I'm assuming that whatever is happening is causing such a severe crash that the system is unable to log it.
The host is Gentoo Linux running a 64-bit kernel.
