The subject warning is logged once in my syslog for every VBoxHeadless startvm that I run.
I see it on two different systems - one running 6.1.20 from a distro, other running 6.1.22 which I built from the OSE.
On that 6.1.22 one, My libgcrypt version is libgcrypt-1.9.3 -- lib is libgcrypt.so.20.3.3
Searching on the web shows numerous instances of the message "Libgcrypt warning: missing initialization - please fix the application" but none of them indicate VBoxHeadless or any virtualbox connection.
I have not attempted to debug this further and it is probably not too important as everything works, but I wonder if anyone else has seen this. On a quick glance at the virtualbox source I cant find any direct reference to or use of libgcrypt at all.
Cheers, John Lumby
