Error recording from CLI: "The machine is not mutable, saved or running" => fixed in SVN/next maintenance

Description

Host: Win10 x64
Guest: Win10 x64
VirtualBox Version 6.0.8

VM is running in headless mode. I would like to start to record the display from command line. Earlier it was possible by executing this command:

VBoxManage controlvm <vm_name> videocap on

And when I wanted to stop the recording the following command was executed:

VBoxManage controlvm <vm_name> videocap off

If I know it well from VBox 6.0(?) this is the valid command for my purpose:

VBoxManage controlvm <vm_name> recording on

But now I got these error messages:

VBoxManage.exe: error: The machine is not mutable, saved or running (state is Running)
VBoxManage.exe: error: Details: code VBOX_E_INVALID_VM_STATE (0x80bb0002), component MachineWrap, interface IMachine, callee IUnknown
VBoxManage.exe: error: Context: "COMSETTER(Enabled)(TRUE)" at line 1879 of file VBoxManageControlVM.cpp

When the GUI of the VBox is used for starting/stopping records (Settings\Display\Recording\Enable Recording) the process is done well but executing from Command Prompt is getting me stuck...

Confirmed as fixed with 6.0.9 r131597 and 6.0.97 r131601.

I have other issues with the recording, but that's a story for another ticket...
