Alright, so at least that is expected behavior, then. Thanks.

Well the only other thing I can think of to assist in troubleshooting the
issue, is to enable some logging ? I took a look at these wiki pages :


But I couldnt see any values for VBOXSVC_RELEASE_LOG and
VBOXSVC_RELEASE_LOG_FLAGS that might be helpful in this particular case.
(or flags and options to supply to 'VBoxManage debugvm <name> log foo',
which seems slightly neater than using the environment variables.)

I browsed through the stuff located in 'include/VBox/log.h' as pointed out
in that page, but couldnt find anything immediately obvious.

(Also a debug build may be useful for debug log purposes, but I cannot find
pre-build debug builds for Windows on the web site).
