some time ago (I'm using this setup since 13.x) I had to use a virtualbox test 
build to workaround problems that were showstoppers for me, so I just blocked 
the virtualbox guest module installation, and built the modules myself based on 
the VBoxGuestAdditions.iso.

This worked very well except this one time, so I never got around to switch back 
to the OpenSuSE RPMs.
