SDK - IGuestSession - (conceptual) bug with CopyTo/From()
|Reported by:||smihaila||Owned by:|

There seems to be a (conceptual) bug with the IGuestSession::CopyTo() and CopyFrom(). The internal code is relying on a 30 seconds timeout for the whole copy operation to finish (because it's counting on some vbox_cat internal process spawn within the Guest). Obviously that fixed timeout is not realistic for large files such as 500MB-1GB long. Not to mention that the host file may not be really on the physical host itself, but located somewhere on the network.
I get into the same issue when I'm using the equivalent VBoxManage command.
