I am running VB 4.3.21_97018 on a Mac host. I downloaded and installed the
4.3.21_97138 GAs and installed them in my Fedora 21 Beta guest which was
working fine. Now I am getting a looping error:

VBoxClient Internal error retrieving the number of saved screen modes.

I didn't purge the old GAs first.
