VBoxManage createdirectory hang in 4.3 => Fixed in SVN

Description

The following command hangs when I try it in VirtualBox 4.3.2 on CentOS 6.4 with a Windows 7 32-bit guest (with VBox Additions 4.3.2 installed on it):

% VBoxManage guestcontrol "My VM" createdirectory C:
some
path --username aUser --password aPass --verbose Opening guest session as user 'aUser' ... Waiting for guest session to start ... Guest session (ID 2) has been started Creating 1 directories ... Creating directory "C:\some\path" ...

Similarly, the COM/XPCOM API call IGuestSession.directoryCreate() and directoryCreateTemp() seem to hang. In both cases, it actually creates the directory (but hangs upon return).

The VirtualBox log doesn't have any entries for this time period (but I've attached it nonetheless).

It works just fine in VirtualBox 4.2.18 (with 4.2.18 Additions installed on the guest).

I also tried a few other host+guest combinations. Mac OS X 10.6 32-bit host, Windows 7 32-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.2.18: works Windows 7 64-bit host, Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: works CentOS 6.4 64-bit host, Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory) CentOS 6.4 64-bit host, Windows 7 32-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory) Mac OS X 10.6 32-bit host, Windows 7 32-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory) Mac OS X 10.8 64-bit host, Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2:hangs (but creates the directory)

So it seems to work fine on a Windows host. Perhaps it's an XPCOM issue?

VBox log from CentOS 6.4 host

comment:1 Changed 5 months ago by rjoyce

This doesn't seem limited to createdirectory; it also happens with some other file operations. e.g., the following hangs as well:

% vboxmanage guestcontrol "My VM" stat / --username myUser --password myPass
Opening guest session as user 'myUser' ...
Waiting for guest session to start ...
Guest session (ID 1) has been started
Checking for element "/" ...

  • Windows 7 64-bit host, Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: works
  • CentOS 6.4 64-bit host, Linux Mint 15 64-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory)
  • CentOS 6.4 64-bit host, Windows 7 32-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory)
  • Mac OS X 10.6 32-bit host, Windows 7 32-bit guest, VirtualBox 4.3.2: hangs (but creates the directory)
