QEMU - slow harddrive / lock-ups / frozen states
You can experience problems with strange lock-ups during harddrive access on DeLi(cate) guests running under qemu.

RE: QEMU - slow harddrive / lock-ups / frozen states
The problem lies in the qemu emulator and can be prevented with one of the following options:

1.) Try to switch the accelerator mode to tcg

qemu-kvm -machine pc,accel=tcg -drive file=delicate.img

2.) use qemu-system-i386 binary instead of qemu-kvm and disable the cache

qemu-system-i386 -drive file=delicate.img,cache=none
