Ticket #4099 (closed defect: fixed)
Main window frequently doesn't populate when run from 'run dialog', flux menu or Konsole

Doesn't Work : 2.2.0, 2.2.2
When run from various 'Run Dialog' programs (gmrun, grun, fluxbox menu) or from the console (Konsole), the main VirtualBox window doesn't populate. This problem occurs frequently, not every time on the test machine. The window appears, with the Sun VirtualBox title, but has nothing inside it. The window cannot be closed using the window manager buttons.
The following gets VirtaulBox to work properly:
VirtualBox (windows appears blank)
(quickly!) VirtualBox (program works fine)
From looking at ps ax immediately after closing VirtualBox, the following processes contine to run for a short time after the killall. I think that if VirtualBox is run again before these have exited, then the new instance opens correctly.
OS: Gentoo, using app-emulation/virtualbox-bin (not compiled from source)
No VBox.log attached as no Guests need to be run to replicate.
