Subject: [gentoo-user] Be cautious about virtualbox-4.2.8 and Win7 guests

1 After updating vbox today I got crashes on login with two different
2 Win7 guests (gentoo ~amd64 host).
4 Luckily, only the most recent snapshot crashed and I was able to
5 boot normally with the second most recent snapshot (both guests).
7 I didn't lose anything important because the only thing I use
8 Windows for is to run Windows Update :) (know thine enemy, etc)
10 Maybe if you have important stuff on a Win7 guest you should make
11 an extra snapshot just before you update to vbox-4.2.8 in case you
12 need to delete the last one.
14 BTW, I had no problems with linux guests so far.
