What guest system(s) are you using? Arch?
Anyway I suggest reporting the bug
at http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Bugtracker
and providing as much details as you can
(kernel logs, virtual hardware config, if VT-x/SVM is enabled)
Arch is officially supported by VirtualBox,
so there are quite high chances that it will be fixed
(if the problem is in VirtualBox, which it seems to be).
