VirtualBox 2.2.0 r45846 - Install Guest Additions Fails on Install after Revert snapshot XP Guest

Host Ubuntu 8.10
I was running Virtualbox 2.1.4 and upgraded yesterday to the new release 2.2.0 r45846. I had a XP Snapshot and went into the GUI Settings, went to snapshots, and did a "Discard Current Snapshot and State". I then started the XP guest and logged in.
Then I went and clicked Devices-> Install Guest Additions and nothing happened. I went to Windows Explorer in the Guest and checked "My Computer" and usually I would see that they had mounted like a CD-ROM and run it manually from there. However they weren't there at all. I tried clicking on Install Guest Additions a few more times and still nothing.
My next step was to shutdown the XP Guest, went to Settings, CD/DVD-ROM section clicked the checkbox for "Mount CD/DVD Drive" and clicked ISO Image File and made sure the "VBoxGuestAdditions.iso" was selected and booted up....
I logged into the Guest XP box and went to Windows Explorer again and they weren't there again when they should have been... I again tried the manual "install guest additions from the Device menu and still nothing.
