10 days later, this guest crashed the test server. I wouldn't
normally be happy that a server has crashed but at least the problem
can be replicated now with that one guest¹.

The test server has now been booted with the configuration that was
suggested may avoid the problem, so it's now a matter of waiting to
see if that is the case. I think the longest we've gone without
issue has been 14 days.


¹ I should stress again that I don't believe the guest is doing
anything malicious, it's just doing something to tickle a bug that
nobody else seems to be doing. I suspect that potentially any
guest on any server could do this at any time.
