Bug Description

After working for a while, I mean 30 minutes for example with software that uses 3D resources, like a CAD or Google Earth. Windows hangs and resets. I don't know whether this is has something to do with Windows as guest, or whether it has something to do with any OS that runs as guest in VirtualBox with Ubuntu as host and uses 3D resources. When working with traditional Gnome 2, the problem is not there.

I wold like to point out that this bug started after I upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04 and, that it also occurs if you login to ubuntu with a traditional gnome 2 session.
