Group information on tap device is ignored/wrong

Description

Hi,

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.

Bye

TAP has been replaced in 2.1.0, so we have no intention to fix any TAP issues.
