This happens in ~<10% cases. Guest hangs right after "Welcome to 
FreeBSD" screen (with 1.-7. boot options), after cursor jumps to the 
bottom left corner of the screen and is supposed to be "spinning".

There is (probably unrelated) error in the log file.
VirtualBox process consumes 100% CPU when hanged.
