Hi Mikhail,

Yes it was fixed. Guessing it was Changeset 46990

I appreciate it and that you will look at the abort situation.  I have 
this on 5 different hosts on 3 different machines all of them with 
nvidia and all compiling their own copy of VirtualBox.


PS it seems that sending email direct to your email is an issue with my 
providers mail server. They see you as a high threat and refuse to send 
it direct.  Whom do I need to contact at Oracle about this so I can get 
it resolved?  They say it is on your end, which I think is crazy but 
need to figure out the reason.
