Ticket #1076 (closed enhancement: fixed)
error message not helpful when machine description file was opened with newer release of VBox

I created a VM with 1.5.0 and later opened this VM with 1.5.4. When trying to open this vm with 1.5.0 again, an error message is printed and the start fails because 1.5.4 has added tags to the machine description which the old release does not understand. This has two aspects IMHO:
- It should IMHO be possible to exchange VMs in the same release (1.5.x) series without an error in case of regressions
- The printed error message is rather long but not very helpful. At least the tag on which the reading fails, should be printed.
