Relax disk image assignment restrictions, please!

It is ok if a read/write harddisk image cannot be used by two running v.m. at the same time, but it is a very bad idea to prevent assignment of same image to different machines. This hinders tests with different machine configurations badly.

Anyway, I would prefer to have the opportunity to assign even read/write harddisks to multiple running v.m. at the same time. Possible application: testing a Global File System (GFS), which is designed specifically to handle this case.

  • Resolution set to fixed

Fixed in 2.1.0 AFAIR, but in every case this works with VBox 2.2.0.
