    1 It's been a perennial pain trying to get VirtualBox to properly recognize integrated Broadcom 5880 Smart Card readers on Dell laptops (in my case using an Ubuntu 11.04 host and Windows guest), even when the card reader checks out fine under on the host and you pass the device through exclusively to the guest.  Worse yet, as of my installation of a Windows 7 guest, I can't even get my trusty SCR3310 reader to work on the guest OS. :(

    33I know virtual machines can handle this hardware - see VMWare - and this is a well known problem for VirtualBox, so I'm at a loss as to why crickets chirp whenever a user submits one of these tickets.  Will someone at Oracle please, PLEASE at least acknowledge that this is a problem, explain why it's happening, and provide a sense of whether there is a technical approach to fix it in a future release?
