[vbox-dev] Possibly non-documented incompatibility 4.x -> 5.0

It looks like in 5.0 the ISession::console attribute is no longer 
created under a Shared or Write lock, but only on a VM lock.
In previous versions of VirtualBox, the console was always available 
regardless of the lock type.

This change is not documented in the SDK where you would expect it:
- IConsole class description
- ISession class description
- Main API change log

The only info is in the ISession::console attribute description.

Is this change expected? Or are there other subtleties in play?
Thank you for the clarification.
