VirtualBox is the first application I have seen on a Mac that crash and reboot the computer. All my other applications are running fine on Snow Leopard with 64 bit kernel, Virtual Box is the only one that crash immediately (and not just the app, the whole system). When I boot SL with 32 bit kernel, Virtual Box works fine and I don't have any crash.
I hope this issue will be fixed in the next release, because it's annoying to have to reboot (32 bit kernel) when I want to work in Windows.
*I don't know what is VBox version so I selected "OSE self-compiled", but it could be something else. I just downloaded and installed VBox (v2.x) and I have applied the updates when available.
VB for Mac is 32 bit only, so running it on a 64 bit kernel, while it uses kernel calls, can fail miserably. But you already noticed that. Check and ask in the Beta Forum if there is a 64 bit version, or when it will be ready. Maybe it will be done as 3.0.6.
*The version you need to select in your profile is PUEL. You downloaded it from the website, and that only holds the PUEL pre-compiled.
