Ticket #3973 (closed defect: fixed)
OS/2 guest cannot shut down if guest additions are installed

Description (last modified by michaln) (diff)
I did a fresh install of OS/2 ACP2 in a VM. Before installing the guest additions, I was able to shut it down, using right-click on desktop, and "shutdown" option.
After installing the OS/2 guest additions, it doesn't work anymore. The OS never shuts down. The only way is to CTRL-ALT-DEL, which flushes the file system, but isn't as clean.
Note that my OS/2 install was fairly basic, it included only TCP/IP for networking, but not file & print sharing (ie. no lan server) which is known to sometimes cause problems/delays in OS/2 shutdown.
I have narrowed down this problem to the vbox guest extensions.
