[vbox-dev] Major issue with auto-mount shared folders

Host Ubuntu 10.10 x86_64 guest Debian7
Latest from SVN r38624

Remove the auto-shared folder in the devices menu of the guest.
Reboot the guest (cold boot)
Delete the /media/sf_share folder

This actually deletes the entire content on the host that was shared 
except the protected files/folders.
Since this was the ~/ on the host you can see the major issue. I can 
recover from backup but was going to switch to Debian anyway.
Still this could be devastating.
