Virtualbox.app files are missing upon restart

Description

On Mac OSX 10.9, virtualbox runs fine on a new install. Upon restarting the host OS, I find that there are files missing in Virtualbox.app.

VBoxManage does not run since VBoxManage itself is missing. Creating a copy of virtualbox.app and comparing the backup with the one on /Applications/Virtualbox.app, I get the following:

Note that '-amd64' and '-x86' versions of said files are present. Moreover, copying the back-up over to the original location fixes the problem.

Could you uninstall VBox and then install VBox 4.3.2? Do you still see that problem?

Installing VBox 4.3.2 should also solve the problem.

Hi. I just updated to 4.3.2 from 4.2.18 and it still happens.

Btw, this does not happen if I downgrade to 4.2.18.

Hm. Found the problem. I have 'ln' pointing to the coreutils implementaion which doesn't have 'ln -h'.

/Library/Application\ Support/VirtualBox/LaunchDaemons/VirtualBoxStartup.sh uses 'ln -h'. Replacing 'ln' with '/bin/ln' solves the problem.

Fixed in 4.3.4.
