I tried again and was able to finish a VirtualBox 4.1.0 guest install using the
RC3 x86_64 DVD, using all of vbox's defaults (except putting the .vdi file in
/tmp instead of my home directory). This includes using 768M RAM, which is the
minimum RAM the installer will allow (I thought maybe that was the problem
initially, sometimes not using enough memory can cause the installer to hang).
