That's not the case, DragonFly has worked consistently on VirtualBox
for a year or so. On some machines it seems to panic on first boot,
but if you warm reset the virtual machine it may come up fine the
second time. Playing with the various machine settings such as APIC_IO
seems to fix this. I am beginning to get the impression that this only
happens on VirtualBox running under Windows.
