    Let's start over. I haven't a clue about your clocksource loop, but I would
suggest rebuilding virtualbox using:


    Of all the different packages, I have had great luck with this one. Just
download the tarball and untar/ungzip with:

tar -xzf virtualbox_bin.tar.gz

cd virtualbox_bin/

makepkg -s

sudo pacman -U virtualbox_bin-3.2.10-2-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

    Then test again.
