Extra data being written when file is in a shared folder

Reported by: MuffinFlavored Owned by:

Version: VirtualBox 3.0.12 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Windows


mount -t vboxsf foo /root/shared/ mkdir /root/shared/packets/

121 bytes of data becomes 132 bytes of data when written to the files.

fopen must be called with in "a" mode. Functions normally in "w" mode. fflush() does not fix anything.

0x00 appears an extra 11 times in 11.txt

I cannot reproduce this on a Linux host with a Linux guest. Will try a Windows host soon. Are you sure you have VBox 3.0.12 guest additions installed? Because previous versions had a known bug when writing data in append mode.

Same for a Windows Vista host. I guess you installed the wrong guest additions.
