VBoxManage > controlvm > videocapfile doesn't work due to typo in code.

VBoxManage controlvm <VM_NAME> videocapfile <FILENAME> doesn't work, printing out

VBoxManage.exe: error: Video capture file name '' is not absolute

This seems to be due to a typo in a single line (L1796) in VBoxManageControlVM.cpp

a->argv[3] should probably read a->argv[2], as the capture filename is supposed to be the second argument.

Meant to say that the capture filename should be in the third argument slot, thus the index should be argv[2].
