[REGRESSION] Copying and pasting between host and guest doesn't work any more

I don't know which was the latest verions of VB I had tried, but copying and pasting between host and guest (in both direction) definitely used to work after installing the Guest Additions.

Now it doesn't (and I have installed the guest addition).

Ok, I just needed to enable it in the machine settings.

I guess this used to be enabled by default and now is disabled by default, because I don't remember ever having to enable it (nor even knowing of its existence) in the past.

Right, this setting is disabled by default for security reasons.
