I have anti virus software installed that includes a replacement/addition
to the standard windows firewall (Norton Internet Security). I already
ruled out that this is causing trouble, as I completely uninstalled that
software during an earlier troubleshooting session.

Im not so sure that that is the same issue; that bug describes something
that was introduced with version 5, my issue was across multiple 4.x 5.x
versions. Also, on my system it used to work (including version 5), and
then somehow I broke it.

Anyway, here are the configs in the attachment 'configs.tar.gz'. It
includes a 'failing.vbox' (the old/broken vm) and a 'working.vbox' (the
new/working vm).

Also, I uninstalled the debug build and re-installed 5.0 with the same
results : failing old vm's and a working new vm.
