The error is between the Mesa and the module responsible for displaying graphics. After a time graphics performance with the active support of 2D and 3D significantly decreases the time the error VirtualBox - Virtual Machine status - canceled.

When turned off, 2D and 3D graphics in the virtual machine settings everything is OK. Unfortunately, we lose smoother graphics, and we gain stability.
