Just wanted to chime in and say that I am experiencing this exact problem, and 
am struggling to come up with a cause, let alone a solution.  Like you, it's 
only one VM on a host with the problem, while the dozen other VMs on the same 
host have never frozen.  The console logs are empty.  I'm at a loss!
