I'm no scripting language expert either, so I don't dare to change such 
things without much more investigation (and I don't have time for 
that)... and this was fixed in trunk almost a year ago (apparently the 
backport was forgotten, because James Lucas provided the patch September 
last year and it was integrated (together with a substantial code 
style/indentation cleanup) quickly after that.

Whatever, I have the backport prepared on my system, just waiting for 
tomorrow so that I don't interfere with a big build which is going on 
right now. The next 4.2 maintenance release will have the necessary SDK 

BTW: vboxServiceWrappers.php is a generated file, so there's no point in 
changing it directly.

Many thanks for the gentle reminder,
