            Bug ID: 265593
           Summary: Virtualbox wil not start after upgrade to 6.1.36
           Product: Ports & Packages
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: amd64
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: Individual Port(s)
          Assignee: ports-bugs@FreeBSD.org

After upgrading virtualbox from 6.1.32 to 6.1.36 VBoxSVC won't run as it
allocates memory until it runs out of swapspace.

A Windows 10 instance (6GB RAM) run as a guest on a FreeBSD 12.3-p5 host (32GB
RAM, 4GB swap) with virtualbox-ose-6.1.32 (vfs.zfs.arc_max is set to 12GB).
Now, after upgrade to 6.1.36 VBoxSVC starts, allocates memory up to over 30 GB
until swapspace is exhausted.

I'm not conviced that it is releated to Virtualbox itself but rather to a
library or kernel functionality.
It seems to be a recurring error as it keeps popping up at least since 2013.

Besides, the dependencies of the port are incomplete as e.g. qt5-dbus-5.15.2
got upgraded to 5.15.5 but not qt5-core-5.15.2.
