VBoxSVC fails to open ~/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml file

Description

I have fresh new installation of VirtualBox 4.2.18 on FreeBSD 11.

# pkg info -x virtual
virtualbox-ose-4.2.18_1
virtualbox-ose-kmod-4.2.18

I used VirtualBox on this laptop a year ago, but have removed the old installation entirely since. I have removed ~/.VirtualBox directory manually.

When I start VBoxSVC, and then VirtualBox, the former fails:

# VBoxSVC 
****************************************************
Oracle VM VirtualBox XPCOM Server Version 4.2.18_OSE

Starting event loop....
[press Ctrl-C to quit]
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'xml::EIPRTFailure'
  what():  Runtime error opening '/root/.VirtualBox/VirtualBox.xml' for reading: -102 (File not found.)
Аварийное завершение(core dumped)

True, there is no such file. According to documentation the file should be created and maintained by VBoxSVC itself, but this doesn't happen at my installation.

I'm ready to provide any additional information.

I have manually put initial XML file (see attachment), and that was enough for VirtualBox to start and populate it.
