oh, sorry for overlooking this mail before. so quite lucky for you
that this thread has clawed itself back out of it's grave.

the problem with vbox is the people who maintain it and allow bugs to
slip in on every other release. there is zero quality control.
normally, it's not a host/cpu issue and it's not a 9front issue. it's
a little babies like to rattle the box issue.

yay, and the 1001th support request about vbox has been answered. my pleasure.
please rate us with 5 stars for our continued engagement on this topic..
thank you.
