Unless the two machines have identical CPUs with identical capabilities,
this will likely end in failure. Operating systems aren't happy having
their CPUs switch capabilities or instruction sets between one cycle and
the next.

Likewise, I've noticed that different CPU speeds tend to screw with the
VM system clock, especially amongst speedstep CPUs.

Shutting down, moving, and restarting the VM works fine though, from my
