VirtualBox Manager hijacks Linux desktop

Reported by: ele Owned by:
Component: GUI Version: VirtualBox 6.1.10
Keywords: Cc: Virtual Box 6.1.12
Guest type: all Host type: Linux


If I remove or rename the virtual disk file of a virtual machine and then start VirtualBox Manager it goes into an endless loop redisplaying an error message box "Failed to open the medium with the following ID: ..."

The message box redisplays itself in a loop and cannot be closed. Besides that it steals the desktop focus so it is impossible to do anything else. Cannot even kill the process or close down the host machine in a proper way! Have to push power button to reboot!

It is OK to display the error message ONCE! It is unacceptable to hijack the desktop!

VirtualBox 6.1.12 Ubuntu 18.04 host Guest is Windows 10 but it probably does not matter(?).
