Description

Locking in xpcom call when using vboxapi in forked multiprocessing process after making a call in the main parent process. This bug occurs if you have used the manager to talk to VirtualBox in the main process followed by trying to use the manager in a forked process.

I have attached a Python script to demonstrate this bug. Looks like the vboxapi has some unrecoverable module global state?
