Recommended virtualization technique for debugging/developing

I was wondering what people use, in the abscense of suitable actual hardware,
to debug/develop FreeBSD (the kernel in particular). I'm willing to resort to
almost any host, including Windows, as long as I have something reliable.
I haven't had much luck with qemu (crashes), nor virtualbox (crashes). I was
going to go for vmware on Windows, but while it ran FreeBSD pretty well,
before I had even percolated the disk layout enough to trigger the bug
(required root-on-zfs) I was hoping to trigger, the vmware configuration tool
crapped out on me and produced a configuration it could not itself read.
What do all you regular kernel developers use, if not physical hardware?
