[vbox-dev] Vista UAC problems

On Vista or Windows 7, when UAC is on
(1) Launch one VirtualBox as Administrator, and start a vm.
(2) Launch another VirtualBox as normal (UAC), and try to create a vm.
Sometimes, it will throw permission denied errors in modifying virtualbox.xml file.
The problem is that two VBoxSVC.exe processes running with different privilege competing for the same file, and thus causes the error.
Any solution for this?
