VM hangs trying to connect to pulseaudio => Fixed in 1.5.6

Following what I just described on ticket #1089 I started VirtualBox again and the Vista VM hanged with a progress dialog saying "Starting the virtual machine..." at 0%.

The log ends with:

And indeed pulseaudio had died (probably due to the bug I reported before). I restarted pulseaudio but VB is still hanged. I just killed it with a "kill -9 ...".

Now it started the Vista VM normally.

Thanks for the report. This is a known issue with 1.5.4: If there is no server available the VM hangs. This bug is already fixed in our SVN and will be part of the next release.
