Host interface broken after upgrade.

On Ubuntu 7.10, after upgrading Virtualbox to 1.5.6 from 1.5.4, My host connections no longer work for either of my XP guest machines.

They are configured as follows

tunctl -t tap0 -u (User Name)

tunctl -t tap1 -u (User Name)

chmod 666 /dev/net/tun

brctl addbr bridge

brctl addif bridge eth2

brctl addif bridge eth3

brctl addif bridge tap0

brctl addif bridge tap1

ethtool -s eth2 autoneg off duplex full

ethtool -s eth3 autoneg off duplex full

ifconfig eth2 up

ifconfig eth3 up

ifconfig tap0 up

ifconfig tap1 up

ifconfig bridge up

dhclient bridge

tap0 is on one guest and tap1 is on the other.

I'm currently back to using NAT but I need the host interface to work in order to remotely administer these machines.
