Hi Klaus,

I'll do some more testing later tonight to see what I can uncover.  Will also 
capture the logs from vboxwebserv to see if maybe an exception is being thrown 
that I may be missing.

Oh ... not sure this would make a difference ... but this is via the webservice 

I did confirm that the vboxweb.wsdl and vboxServiceWrappers.php are both defined 
as expected.

Neither is marked as fixed, just the summary points to SVN. And yes, 4.0 
has the code. No matter which BETA you're looking at.

Can't confirm. The code is there for all arrays, filling it with the 
information returned by the host OS. This is so simple that it's hard to 
imagine that there's a bug in this area.

The operation is definitely implemented now, and also expects a URI 

I really wonder what's going wrong for you there, it cannot possibly 
return the same error code...
