Ticket #3043 (closed defect: wontfix)
Group information on tap device is ignored/wrong

|Version:||VirtualBox 2.0.6||Keywords:||group settings VBoxTunctl|
When creating a tap device for host interface communication some problems appear: When creating the tapdevice with: VBoxTunctl -u $user -t $tap the device can be used by $user for host interface networking.
If we now add the user to the vboxusers group and create the tap device for that group: VBoxTunctl -g vboxusers -t $tap or: VBoxTunctl -u $user -g vboxusers -t $tap the device cannot be used by $user for host interface networking.
Host is Gentoo Linux Kernel 2.6.27r7.
