USB Devices Menu Grayed Out - VirtualBox 3.1.0

I've run into a strange problem after upgrading a Mac OSX Host from VirtualBox 3.0.12 to the new 3.1.0 build. The "USB Devices" menu for the Guest is completely grayed out.
This problem has been listed in the forum for about a week. Please see images and further details at forum post: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=25474
Here's what I'm running on this machine:
Host = Mac OSX Leopard ( v. 10.5.8 )
Guest = Windows Pro XP SP3
VirtualBox 3.1.0 PUEL version (installer package VirtualBox-3.1.0-55467-OSX.dmg)
USB Controller Enabled in Guest
Guest Additions 3.1.0 installed
Interestingly, I can still attach to USB devices through the icon in the lower right-hand-side of the Guest window.
I thought perhaps reinstalling VBox 3.1.0 might fix this problem with the grayed out USB Devices menu. I've tried two reinstalls so far without success.
I can revert my WinXP VM back to VBox 3.0.12 and then use the USB Devices menu just as before -- everything works fine. The problem is reproducible.
I couldn't locate any info on resolving this problem. This appears to be a bug. Please let me know if you have questions or need further details to resolve this problem.
VBox log attached.
