This is a shortcoming of VirtualBox. Qemu has the same problem in principle, but you can work around there by switching to the console (ctrl-alt-2), and use the "sendkey alt-sysrq-d" command - I don't know if VirtualBox has something similar.

Maybe its user documentation contains some hints about sending extra keys.

I recently had a similar issue and compiled and added the CLI app kernel_debugger to the image.

Is there a reason, the kernel_debugger isn't part of every (alpha) image?

You can send alt-sysrq-d to Haiku vm using the command below:

VBoxManage controlvm Haiku keyboardputscancode 38 54 20
