dvd image written as {00000000....} (all zero uuid) makes machine inaccessible

Had a cd iso image loaded and released/removed from vm. For some reason the <Image /> uuid in the <DVDDrive> tag of my vm was written with a uuid of all zero's. This prevented me from loading the vm. To fix it, I just removed the <Image> tag and clicked the refresh button. *WHEW!*

Additional note: This happened on vbox 3.0.2. When I saw the error, I upgraded to 3.0.4 assuming there was probably already a bugfix for it. Upgrading did not resolve the issue.

Well, we are not able to reproduce your problem. Such a UUID should never be written. If this was the case, this is a bug and we would like to reproduce this bug. Please could you give some instructions how to reproduce this bug?
