I've only ever installed Windows guests. Is the FreeBSD host system
freezing up or the Linux guest install?

I've installed various versions since VirtualBox hit ports and I've
never had an issue, so I've never tried to troubleshoot anything, so
I wouldn't know where to point you specifically.

Is the host still accessable via SSH, ie: the X system is freezing,
or the whole system frozen? Anything in /var/log/messages ?
