I'm not great at reading the screens, so if you are interested in the full error, it is shown in the link about.
Has anyone else found a workaround?

Are you sure it's a kernel bug? Your screen says segmentation fault in umount, so there must be some bug in that tool, not linux. Also, if the kernel panicks, the system won't shutdown at all. BTW, I recommend using png files instead of jpg. :)
doesn't vbox have to be rebuilt everytime the kernel changes or something? or the guest additions? or both?
btw, have you tried KVM + libvirt[virtmanager/<insert one of several good webapps>]? there are a lot of great options out there now -- i haven't had a single issue with my local KVM setup, and am in the process of moving my companies infrastructure to it as well (+ some LXC goodness) ... when i used vbox it was nice, but ... yeah :-)
... libvirt can handle vbox images in transition, too; just an idea, it's been good to me.
