I have this problem without virtual box. The system consumes memory until it
gets down to a couple of hundred megabytes. By then, network response times
shoot up. Since I collect this data, I can also tell you that there are
periodic "resets" where the response time improves for some period of time.
The cycle continues until the system crashes due to memory starvation.
