Hi all.

I hope this is the right place for me to raise my issue.
After doing a pacman -Syu and then rebooting I noticed that I could no
longer start my VirtualBox vms

I get the following error: Failed to open a session for the virtual
machine My_VM
Callee RC: NS_ERROR_INVALID_ARG (0x80070057)
Virtualbox then crashes (segmentation fault).

I had the testing repo enabled, so I thought that one of the packages
from testing might have broken it.
So I disabled the testing repo in pacman.conf and removed all testing
packages with:
pacman -Syy
pacamn -Suu

I then recompiled my virtualbox drivers and rebooted.
But that did not help at all.

I created a core dump file by following these instructions:

So the stack trace is 41000 lines long :-|
I'll paste just the first and last few lines:

#41541 0x08048c81 in ?? ()

Any advice?
Should I file a bug in the arch bug tracker?
Thanks in advance.
