I was wondering whether anybody managed to crash a virtualbox guest
using your program. No avail, using version 4.1.18 on the host and the
guest kernel running several 3.0.x (x < 38) kernels on both x32 and
x64, the guest utilies were stopped. Rather a fun fact I guess but I
wanted to let you know.

All real hardware tested, including a dockstar on armel, crashed as
predicted, while 3.0.38-rc1 was immune.
