I'm running a 32 bit Windows 7 Guest on a 64 bit install of VirtualBox 4.2.10 r84104. The Host OS is Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit. The host os has 8GB of memory and the guest is told to utilize 2GB max.
While the guest reports proper memory usage, the VirtualBox process will consume 90-95% of my host physical memory and bring the entire system to its knees.
Does anyone know what is causing the issue?
