My working environment is Ubuntu 10.10 and I'm using the Virtual Box 4.0 
release version and downloaded the recent SDK from the website.

I have modified the tstXPComCGlue.c and try to control the VM once the 
VM is started. When I was debugging the code, once the program calls the 
either PowerDown or Pause function from the SDK, it stops with the "seg 
fault" message displayed. So it is quite difficult for me to actually 
see what cause the error.

With the same code and methodology, there wasn't a problem with the 
Pause/PowerDown with the Virtualbox 3.2. So it is confusing to me...

Thank you.
