Mavericks crashes when using Skype and sharing a Parallels VM screen

This *may not* be Parallels fault, although due to the error message I get afterwards, I get to blame Parallels for it (I really think it’s the latest Mavericks Release, as it didn’t happen before this).

  1. Open Skype
  2. Start non-video call with another user.
  3. Share screen that is hosting a parallels VM
  4. Wait a few minutes
  5. OS crashes back to login.

On Login (nothing has started up yet), I get the following error from Parallels:


That’s funny, since I check Parallels and it says “Up to date”.

I’m running Mavericks version 10.9.3.
