VboxSVC on windows does not always exit when run under two login names.

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)
Running vboxheadless as a service on windows ( http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=15450&start=0) launches virtualbox using the localsystem account. If the user then launches the vbox gui logged in as a normal user then two vboxsvc processes are visible in taskmanager. Exiting both the user and the service seems to leave behind one of the vboxsvc process. This process cannot be 'end tasked' using task manager or Process Explorer.
From that point the gui cannot be launched. It reports a locking error on the virtualbox.xml file. Only a reboot clears this left over vboxsvc process releasing the xml file.
I believe that this problem is related to vboxsvc being run under two different user names concurrently but it is difficult to say exactly.
Please let me know if I can provide further information (and what that information would be).
