I think GuruMeditation is a crash of VirtualBox, its not clear why it crashed though, could be that you run too many 4 core WU's on the processor at once?

Try to limit to 1 WU at once and see if it run smoothly?

Ok..reinstated a app_config that limits LHC to one task.
I was running ATLAS and Theory together, but in the past I have seen this where two ATLAS tasks cause a crash. Don't know why, but LHC tasks seem to do this. But then again, these are the on Vbox tasks I have. Everything else is 'clean'
