Various segmentation faults Debian Squeeze Virtualbox running on Debian Squeeze host

I have a Debian 6 host Running VirtualBox 4.
Dell precision 690 8 gig ram

When I start a virtual machine running debian 6 I get random segmentation faults.

Usually with amavis or clamav.

Any suggestions?

Segmentation or memory faults indicate

1. A bad stick of ram
2. Crazy software, leading to crashes

What have you fixed before the problem began? Otherwise, memtest86 for the memory, and fsck for the disks.
