Bug Description

Error: VirtualBox[1458]: segfault at 4f4f40 ip b517ecec sp bfb60850 error 6 in[b4f58000+aaa000]
Host: Ubuntu Precise: Linux anemone 3.2.0-24-generic-pae #37-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 25 10:47:59 UTC 2012 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Guest: Win XP or Win 7
Guest additions, including 3d accel.

This is consistently reproducible in both Win XP and Win 7 guests by loading several documents with Adobe reader. On second or third document the image in the reader window appears corrupted; trying to scroll it with mouse causes the VM process to segfault with the above message in kern.log.

Turning off 3D accel in guest settings appears to work around the problem.
