Hi All,

Not sure if this is the right place to send this.  I did add to the forum 
(VirtualBox Beta Feedback) and sent a PM to one of the moderators to determine 
if that was the correct approach.  The moderator has not yet had a chance to 
respond but as I have more to send ... I am trying to determine the correct 
process.  Please let me know.

I am in the process of migrating from 3.2.12 to 4.0.0 (BETA2 at the moment). 
 The ticket does show a status of fixed ... so I am assuming it is part of 4.x. 
 That may be a bad assumption on my part though.

VirtualBox: Version 4.0.0_BETA1 r68572
Host: Windows XP (Service Pack 2)

I have not tested this functionality on Linux yet ... can/will update with 
results once I am able to test.

IVFSExplorer::entryList - Ticket #7148 -> http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/7148
Testing the IVFSExplorer::entryList API, the enhancement to support returning 
permission and size in addition to file name and type is not working.

Per the documentation, this API is defined as:
void IVFSExplorer::entryList (
    out wstring[] aNames,
    out unsigned long[] aTypes,
    out unsigned long[] aSizes,
    out unsigned long[] aModes

The API is only returning the first two elements in the response (same as 3.2.10 
and 3.2.12).


IVFSExplorer::cd - Ticket #7147 ->http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/7147
Though indicated as fixed, does not work in 4.0. The suggested work-around 
described in the ticket for 3.2.x still works in 4.0.
