announced backward compatibility link "VBoxVRDP->VBoxHeadless" is wrong in Windows => Fixed in SVN

Description

quoted manual: "VirtualBox therefore comes with yet another front-end that produces no visible output on the host at all, but instead only delivers VRDP data. With VirtualBox 1.6, this “headless server” is now aptly called VBoxHeadless. (In previous versions, it was called VBoxVRDP. For the sake of backwards compatibility, the VirtualBox installation still installs an executable with that name as well.)"

So the link should be going by the name of "VBoxVRDP", but it is actually "VBoxRDP" with a missing second "V" instead. This brings up some compatibility issues with (e.g.) my contributed project "VBoxVmService" or any secondary software, that would call the deprecated "VBoxVRDP" command...
