Does anybody know what to do about this?

Machine is a 2008 Core 2 Duo iMac with 4GB RAM. (And 64bit Debian 7 boots OK, but I've not tried installing under the latest version of VirtualBox as I have just upgraded VBox today.)

VirtualBox 4.3, upon trying to boot a machine with the Ubuntu 13.10 (64bit) iso (with the VM configured for Ubuntu 64bit) crashes, with the following information:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Ubuntu64.

The VM session was aborted.

And please somebody fix the code so that you can just delimit large blocks of code at the start and the end without indenting every line manually by 4 spaces.
