Isn't that just working around the following bug?
Ticket #19357 (accepted defect)
VBoxClient crashes on Luuntu 14.04 after updating from 6.1.2 to 6.1.4

> I noticed that with a default Fedora 32 workstation install (default
> GNOME3 on
> Wayland session) VirtualBox crashes immediately at startup. The problem
> is that
> QT5 now defaults to the Wayland backend and VirtualBox assumes the X11
> is used and makes a bunch of unchecked X11 calls which cause NULL
> pointer derefs.
> The attached patch is a simple fix which fixes this by setting the QT
> back to X11.
