Two good news!

1. The bug disappeares if I disable VT-x/AMD-V in my virtual machine 
settings (Settings -> System -> Acceleration) and appeares if I enable it 
(thanks to Gleb for inspiration yesterday). It disappeares everywhere, on 
all revisions.

2. r244315 seems to be not buggy even with VT-x enabled. So we have to 
look somewhere between r244315 and r248935.
