fresh VBox install on fresh Mageia4beta1 system will not run guests -> no longer reproducible

Description

Unfortunately, both VB 4.3.4 and Mageia4beta1 are fresh, first-time installs, so I have no way to determine for sure which is at fault.

When starting Windows guest, I end up with the following windows:

  1. Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager
  2. W7 [Starting] - Oracle VM VirtualBox
  3. W7: Starting virtual machine [0%] -- associated with #2
  4. W7: Starting VM [20%] -- associated with #1

After doing a lot of testing on the Mageia beta, I got back to this desktop and VBox was still sitting at 20% with a spinning cursor on Dec 7 -- Windows 7 was started on Dec 5, over a full day before the screen shot I'll be attaching.

Hitting the Close buttons on all these VBox windows has no effect; the app will not close and must be killed.
