[vbox-dev] Shared folder automount only mounts volumes as root on Linux

Has anyone else noted that VB 6.1.16 automounts shared folders with root 
permissions? This problem is noted with 5.10 kernels on host and guest

In addition, a manual mount from the guest specifying the UID and GID still ends 
up with root permissions.

As far as I remember, the correct permissions were present with VB 6.1.14 and 
older kernels.
