Bluetooth headset cuts out when starting guest

Guest type: Linux Host type: Windows


I'm running Vbox 4.1.10 on Win7 with a Mint 12 guest. I use a bluetooth headset paired with the host. When I start the guest, almost immediately, the bluetooth headset cuts out. If I disconnect and reconnect the headset, it works again. If I shutdown the guest, it works again.

I thought the guest might be taking over the bluetooth, so I disabled bluetooth in the guest. I'm now fairly sure that couldn't have been it. Everything I've read in the forums indicates that bluetooth devices are passed through as USB. I've now disabled USB in Vbox's settings for the guest - but the behavior continues.
