Bug Description

I recently upgraded my kernel from 2.6.38 to for Realtek 8192CU wireless usb key support. That works perfectly now, but I think the new kernel killed my virtualbox. If I start the system without starting virtualbox, it crashes my software center, updater, synaptec, etc. If I try to start virtualbox it starts loading one VM and then immediately tries to start loading another VM and the system crashes.
