Well "virtualization" is not very important thing in the OpenBSD world. I am more surprised that Qemu actually works on OpenBSD.
There is even somebody who is hacking Wine as we speak.

The Qemu has real problems if you are running SMP kernel. If I remember correctly certain network cards also can create troubles. Check the mailing lists as many problem could be resolved by properly setting parameters. I personally didn't have the nerves to play with it. My conclusion was that Qemu was not usable for me. It looks like you might have come up with the same conclusion
For me it was overkill to begin with. I wanted to run it because I need sometimes to use Flash in order to access my insurance information (I know it is ridiculus). My idea was to install Opera on the top of Windows running in Qemu and use if I have to.
I just learned today from ports@ that Flash 9 actually works on OpenBSD and that after changes in audio Gnash is much, much more stable so that is probably all I need. Java plug-in on the another hand are not distributed as binaries but I built JDK 1.5 once and now I have those idiotic plug-ins on all machines.
