Our spec file does not install /usr/bin/VirtualBox as suid, nor does it need to 
be when our packages are used. I have no idea why this error is happening. As 
both instances that I know about come from converting from the Oracle RPM to the 
openSUSE version, perhaps some files got left behind. Unfortunately, I cannot 
duplicate the problem.
