It's not exactly a "bad ISO" if it boots on real hardware... so it may
be a bug in virtualbox that is triggered by something unusual in the ISO.

Since I would really like to be able to use Lubuntu ISOs in virtualbox,
I am in the process of learning how to create them in a Ubuntu-like way.
 When (if?) I succeed, I will hopefully be able to track down this issue

When I built a "sort-of-but-not-really" Lubuntu ISO using live-helper,
that ISO *did* boot just fine in virtualbox for me.  But that's not how
Ubuntu does its livecd ISO creation. So, now I should learn about and
play with germinate, and livecd-rootfs, and debian-cd, and ubuntu-cdimage :)

Is there already a LaunchPad bug for this issue?  If not, please do
create one!
