when creating multiple vboxnetX configuration is always replaced with the first one

when creating more than one host-only network (vboxnet1, vboxnet2, etc.) the configuration (ip address, netmask, etc.) is always replaced with the configuration of the first interface (vboxnet0). you can reconfigure them by hand (ifconfig/ip addr) or using vbox ui but when starting the guest vm they get misconfigured again.

from the guest vm using any of the internal interfaces (no matter if they are connected to vboxnet1 or vboxnet2) you can always ping vboxnet0 ip address.

vbox 2.2.4 only supports one host-only network so deploying a not so complex network scenario is currently not possible in virtualbox.
