If the bug is easily triggered with your guest os, then you could try to
capture the traffic with wireshark (or something else) in a
configuration that doesn't crash your system. Save the traffic in a pcap
file. Then you can see if resending that traffic in the vulnerable
configuration triggers the bug (I don't know if something in Windows
exists, but tcpreplay should work for Linux). Once you have such a
capture , chances are the bug is even easily reproducible by us (unless
it's hardware-specific). Success isn't guaranteed, but I think it's
worth a shot...

cheers,
Bart
