Hi All.

I encountered some problems when i was using vbox guetscontrol
commands, in the enviroment of vbox 4.1.16

For copyfrom, it is ok. But the copyto command always caused
errors.The command listed below :

VBoxManage.exe guestcontrol "WinXP" copyto "c:\\JDK.chm" "c:\\"
--username "user" --password "123456"

The error info showed like this :

Progress state: VBOX_E_IPRT_ERROR
VBoxManage.exe: error: Client error 2147483680 while processing input data.
VBoxManage.exe: error: Error processing "c:\\JDK.chm", rc=VERR_GENERAL_FAILURE

It seems the command only copied the first 64kb of the file into the
guest os system.
And according to the log and UI output guest os , a process executing
'vbox_cat' cmd was stuck, which was started by VBoxService.exe.

Later, I found that a bug was post here, Does it mean that it is a bug
for vbox now ?

Could anyone give me some clues to solve this.
My hots OS system is Windows7 64b, and guest for WinXP sp3. The
version of VirtualBox is 4.1.16.

Thanks in advance~
