Description

Hello,

Setup: VirtualBox 5.1.26 on Mac OS X 10.11.6 (El Capitan), guest os is Linux Ubuntu 14.0.4 LTE. Dual monitor. Keyboard, mouse and external monitor are routed from the lightning connector on the mac through an El Gato Thunderbolt2 Dock box. Specifically, the setup looks like:

MAC (lightning connector) -> El Gato Dock (USB + video cables) -> Dell U3415W monitor (USB ports)-> Keyboard, Mouse

I updated today to 5.1.26 from '24. On the previous version I used to be able to unplug the lightning connector to the dock box from the Mac, and the VM window would just move to the builtin display and keep going, receiving input from the builtin keyboard and trackpad.

However, on the new version the VM aborts instantly and repeatably as soon as I unplug the connector.

Disable the audio in the VM or install the latest test build. See if that fixes it...
