Have more information on how/why it crashed? Was it a clean shutdown? Did the guest kernel crash?

Upgrading systemd from console does not cause the system to crash.

It seems gdm restarts, however.

Upgrading systemd in virtualbox brings 'sad mac' screen but both the system and the session keeps running.

Looks like a problem in the Spice module of KVM/qemu, judging by #2. Reassigning to qemu.
Comment 8 Cole Robinson 2012-10-31 11:46:14 EDT
hramrach, Thanks for the report.

What version of qemu is this?

Can you do 

debuginfo-install qemu-system-x86
gdb qemu-system-x86
> run <your cli arguments>

Then reproduce the issue, and at gdb prompt enter

> thread apply all bt

And post the output here.
