I have an openSUSE Leap 15.0 guest machine running under VirtualBox on either of two Windows 10 hosts, both of which have AMD Ryzen processors with AMD-V hardware-assisted virtualization enabled. (It does not matter which host machine is being used.) When I pause or suspend the VM on either host in VirtualBox, the guest OS may experience a kernel panic upon resuming. This doesn't happen every time, but it seems more likely the longer the time interval between when the VM is suspended or paused and when it is resumed.

I am unable to determine the exact cause of the VM, only that I get a system hang and the flashing keyboard lights indicating a kernel panic.

This problem makes it less convenient for me to work on the VM while I'm on the go on my laptop or otherwise need to quickly stop and resume the VM. Any ideas why this happens?
