Hi all, like now I'm connecting to a customer server, through ssh, where virtualbox are present and I forget to add the -X switch to the ssh command line and:

srv:/home/vbox# VirtualBox Failed to open the X11 display! Segmentation fault srv:/home/vbox# dmesg | tail -n1 [211691.433193] VirtualBox[11661]: segfault at 50 ip b5a85b64 sp bf9e34c0 error 4 in[b5a74000+17000] srv:/home/vbox#

Can't reproduce this here with Debian/Lenny. Which distribution is that and which VBox package did you install?
