closemedium: Cannot register because a hard disk already exists

Hi guys,

Here is a little bug I found playing with vboxmanage import/closemedium commands.

In short: having a double slash in the medium name cause it to be unclosable.

Attached, a script to reproduce the bug. The OVA used to reproduce the bug :

Tested on Ubuntu 13.10

Works here with the latest VirtualBox release, so it was fixed at some point. Btw. closemedium will complain that the disk image is still attached to 1 VM, the image needs to be detached first and then closemedium works even if the path contains double slashes.

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
