Auto Capture Notice Dialog

Description

Hello,

I noticed that the GUI/SuppressMessages application preferences are written to the ~/Library/VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml file. To be technically correct with Apple standards, user application preferences should be written to ~/Library/Preferences/org.virtualbox.app.VirtualBox.plist. The preferences file should be automatically created after removing, thereby removing all custom settings.

I also think there should be a setting in the application preferences to disable or enable the suppressing of the keyboard capture notice. For instance:

Virtualbox:Preferences:Input

[ ] Auto Capture Keyboard [ ] Display Auto Capture Notice

Kind regards.

I'm sure the OSX integration can be improved. At least you can disable the 'input capture' dialog by clicking on '[x] don't show this warning the next time'.

Yes, but once clicked, it's gone. At least until one discovers the "reset all warning" option in the help menu. I think the "don't ask me again" option is somewhat unusual, but ok, it could at least update an application preference that can be reverted.
