MySQL Workbench 5.2 OSS crashes VirtualBox 3.0.x on any canvas operation. Even if we are doing something wrong here, which I doubt as VMWare and Parallels function ok, this should not crash entire OS image.

So I'm inclined to think this has nothing to do with us but with video driver in VBox and posting this report just to provide workaround for anyone with such problems.

How to repeat:

Suggested fix:
Start Workbench with -swrendering switch to avoid crashing image:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Workbench 5.2 OSS\MySQLWorkbench.exe" -swrendering
