The following command fails on Windows hosts: (from vboxshell.py)
vbox> guest "Windows XP immu 11" 'print console.guest.executeProcess("ping.exe",
 0, "", "", "Administrator", "123456", 10000)'
Objects for SAFEARRAYS must be sequences (of sequences), or a buffer object.

The same works on Debian Linux hosts.
Host: Windows XP + python 2.6.6 + pyWin v216 + VBox 4.0.51 r72388
