Please try to get a coredump and stacktrace. You need to have the DEBUG
option enabled or use the binary packages and set sysctl
kern.sugid_coredump=1 first to also get coredumps for suid binaries like
VirtualBox is. Once you have a core file please run "gdb
/usr/local/lib/virtualbox/VirtualBox your_corefile.core" and send me the
output of "bt full".
