Bug Description

Trying to start VirtualBox causes a segmentation fault. No additional information is displayed when started via terminal. The window is not shown (not even miliseconds). After trying to launch segmentation fault is displayed immediately and I got thrown back to the terminal. This happens to both, virtualbox and virtualbox-ose from Quantal repositories as well as from Quantal repository from www.virtualbox.org (VirtualBox 4.2).

When using the installer VirtualBox-4.2.0-80737-Linux_amd64.run from www.virtualbox.org it runs well, everything works just fine. Just the versions from repositories do not even start.
