[vbox-dev] VBoxManage guestcontrol --wait-for stdout

I am running 2 commands where one command is a long running command whose
output I am interested in. As an example say command is cmd.exe. Then when I
run the second command while first is running, it hangs.

1. VBoxManage guestcontrol execute <VmName> --username <user> --password
<pass> cmd.exe --wait-for stdout
2. VBoxManage guestcontrol execute <VmName> --username <user> --password
<pass> calc.exe --wait-for stdout

Calc.exe does not start as long as cmd.exe is running. This used to work in
VBox 3.2 but does not work on VBox 4.0.8. Is this expected behavior change
or a regression?
