I can't say I used VirtualBox RDP extensively, certainly not in the
newer 4.x series, yet. For my tasks it sufficed to switch the VM
from headless to GUI and back via savestate, as automated by my
script from vboxsvc ("vbox.sh -s vmname startgui" for a VM config'd
as a vboxsvc SMF service already).

I can't say much about OI desktop problems either - works for me
(along with VBox 4.2.0 release), suboptimally due to lack of drivers,
but reliably.

Try to boot with "-k" option to use a kmdb debugger as well - maybe
the system would enter it upon getting stuck (does so instead of
rebooting when it is panicking) and you can find some more details
