Description of problem:
For sure, the last time it happend I had just shutdown a win XP guest.  The time before that I am not sure if it was during the guest shutdown.

The shutdown was done in the guest, not via the virt manager.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Full updated Fedora on 7/9/13 at 9:24 AM PDT

How reproducible:
Do some stuff in a win XP guest.  It has happend twice, so far.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run windows XP guest
2. Run some apps.

Actual results:
Kernel crashes

Expected results:
No Crash

Additional info:

I hade been installing a program that required disconnecting and reconnecting a cdrom drive containing each of the 4 CDs required to install the program.

I also had attemped to run the program (game) a couple of times and the game had me install direct 9 and reboot the first time I ran it.  That reboot did not cause a crash the crash happend after that reboot of the guest.

The previous crash happened fairly soon after creating the VM guest and before any attempt to install the game.

This happend again when closing a win 7 guest.  I tried a CentOS 6 guest by starting the guest, doing a compile in Eclipse, then shutting it down.

No crash when shutting down the Linux guest.

I wonder if this might have to do with what I am doing on the VM guests.  In both cases I was attempting to install and run an old game (very old).  So installshield was run then the game was run.  In the case of the win XP guest I also caused the installation software to install directx 9.  I didn't do tha on the win 7 VM.

I do now that the game resuires directX 9 or above and assumed the XP (SP3) didn't have teh directX driver installed and .therefore, caused the installer to install directX.  I assumed win 7 would have directX at a version higher than  required or xp and so didn't have the installer stall it.
