VBox forgets that DVD drive is set for passthrough => fixed in SVN, fix will be in 3.1.4

Description

After installing VBox 3.1.0 r55467 I find that each time I start VirtualBox the DVD drive attached to my VMs is no longer marked for passthrough. I have to re-enable passthrough on each VM each time I start the VBox tool.

Please fix it so that the Passthrough checkbox`s state is saved as it was in 3.0.x

This bug appears to be back. I'm running 3.1.2 r56127. Every time I start the one VM that needs passthrough disabled I need to go to settings and check the box again every time.

Confirmed that the bug is still there in 3.1.2. And confirmed that it is gone in SVN.

Scratching my head. There must be another bug in the 3.1 branch which causes this problem.

A little more clicking around shows that the setting is saved perfectly fine to the config file, but isn't read from it. Mystery...

  • Summary changed from VBox forgets that DVD drive is set for passthrough => fixed in SVN to VBox forgets that DVD drive is set for passthrough => fixed in SVN, fix will be in 3.1.4

Mystery resolved. It was a really odd bug specific to 3.1.0/3.1.2, which caused the setting to be dropped more or less at the very latest point possible, just when storing the value in the C++ object, and in a very non-obvious way.

In case someone wants the patch right away for building an OSE package, just let me know. It's a single line change.
