Fail to start VirtualBox-4.3 GUI in Mint Maya

I used Virtualbox-4.2 (4.2.18-88780~Ubuntu~precise). It works great.
I try to upgrade to Virtualbox-4.3 (4.3.0-89960~Ubuntu~precise).
After installed, I can't start virtualbox GUI.

Here is my VBoxSVC.log

$ cat VBoxSVC.log

And the GUI show (see attached file):

Failed to create the VirtualBox COM object.
The application will now terminate.

update my test for 4.3 beta:
virtualbox-4.3_4.3.0~beta1-88249~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb => GUI works
virtualbox-4.3_4.3.0~beta2-88827~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb => fail
virtualbox-4.3_4.3.0~beta3-89194~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb => fail
virtualbox-4.3_4.3.0~rc1-89687~Ubuntu~precise_amd64.deb => fail

I try two laptops for host: ASUS K42Jv and Toshiba R700, both of them installed Mint Maya.
Both have the same result.
