Delete snapshot broken - online medium merge fails => fixed in svn

Reported by: noteirak Owned by:
Priority: critical Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.2.6 Keywords: snapshot online medium merge failed
Cc: Guest type: all
Host type: Linux

Description

After upgrading to 4.2.6, it is not longer possible to delete a snapshot while the VM is any other state then Powered Off. Before, it will still possible to remove a snapshot if the VM was paused for the operation, but it is no longer the case.

Therefore, it is possible to take a snapshot while the VM is paused, but not to delete it afterwards, which gives a VM stuck with a snapshot. This totally break backup scripts.

Reproduced and fixed the problem. It is indeed a regression from 4.2.4. Fix will be included in the next maintenance release, thanks for reporting the issue!
