Hi Michael,

Thanks much.  I was going to open a bug-tracker ticket but wanted to wait as I 
was unclear if the problem was with the documentation or with the code.

Since you have fixed it ... I'll not open one.

As my 'work-around' seems to be usable ... no need for you to provide a test 
build.  However ... if possible, could you ensure the notes for the release 
which includes the fix indicate this as I will use that to trigger correcting my

I took a look and can confirm that this is not working as it should in
VirtualBox 3.2.  I have now fixed it, and the fix will be in any future
VirtualBox releases.  I can also provide you with a testbuild from the
3.2 series containing the fix if you like.
