Description

I have installed VIrtualBox in a non-global zone on OpenSolaris 2009.06, but I can't list the ostypes:

dave@vbox:/$ pfexec /usr/bin/VBoxManage list ostypes

ERROR: failed to initialize COM!

This is not the same problem as #4899:

dave@vbox:/$ pfexec pkg install SUNWuiu8

This appears to be some kind of a permissions issue; if I su in the global zone and then do my zlogin to the non-global zone, everything works. Not sure if this is an outright bug, a misleading error message, or 100% user error.
