VirtualBox Crashes - How to debug?

I am facing the following issue and could use some help on how to debug this. Thanks!

VirtualBox (latest 6.1.6 version from stable repo) with Windows 10 guest crashes. The logs within the Virtualbox-Interface do not show anything useful. Where could I find other/more logs regarding the crash?

The strange thing:
I do believe this has something to do with LibreOffice (latest from repo). I can work for hours in Win10 with no problems, but starting Libreoffice Calc and e.g. simply copying something from there will crash Virtualbox. I can reproduce this.
Also, with Libreoffice Calc running a newly started VBox Win Guest will crash shortly after windows login, no other action needed. If no Libreoffice is running, it starts just fine.

I am really thankful for any hint on how to debug this. I do need to use Windows for my work. Ditching LibreOffice is an option, but finding the problem would be preferred of course.

Environment: Kernel 5.6.11-1-MANJARO, KDE Plasma 5.18.5

Copying how, what exactly: text, image that is in the file, drag and drop ... ?

Please provide:
inxi -Fxxxza --no-host

Use ``` above and bellow the output text when you share it here, for proper formatting.

It happens when copying text from a spreadsheet cell. Copying from a LibreOffice Text or other applications (e.g. password manager) works just fine.

I also forgot to mention that disabling the "Shared Clipboard" in VBox stops the problem. So it has something to do with the clipboard. Maybe klipper (the KDE clipboard manager) plays a role.
Edit: Disabling klipper does not help.

Here are my settings (quite default actually)



and no defined actions. As for Virtual Machines i have this in VBox settings for all of them


I was not able to reproduce the issue.

Is this the default for Tuxedo Computers running Manjaro or did you modified something ?
Let me ping @philm and @oberon to test on their side, or maybe they have a straight forward solution for this.

Mine are 100% the same.

This is due to a fix I had to do when installing I suppose; the manjaro installer / hardware detection does not set the graphics correctly. See my answer here: Manjaro is good on Intel Comet lake yet?

So far this was working alright with no other issues, but I am happy to test any other setting out.

Sidenote: Upgrading to LibreOffice-fresh (Build ID: 6.4.3-3) does not change anything.
