[vbox-dev] QCoreApplication::setSetuidAllowed(true) needed for virtualbox dev versions to get setuid permissions for Qt

The development snapshots are complaining about setuid problems, since 
the executables are chmodded to 4755:

Qt FATAL: FATAL: The application binary appears to be running setuid, 
this is a security hole.

It seems that Qt does not allow setuid() for now... I think calling 
QCoreApplication::setSetuidAllowed(true)  is needed.

Thank you.
