Can't restore snapshot by name using VBoxManage

Description

I am unable to restore a snapshot by name using the VBoxManage command line tool. I can restore snapshots in the GUI, and I can also restore snapshots on the command line using their uuid. I have a branched snapshot hierarchy, but my Current State (location in the hierarchy) doesn't have any effect on my inability to restore by name.

This doesn't work:

vboxmanage snapshot "Windows XP" restore Green

This does:

vboxmanage snapshot "Windows XP" restore 7252c1f2-55b4-47a4-b3d3-4aa69c413534

Relevant (hopefully) XML files attached, along with a UI screenshot for easier visualization of hierarchy.

I have confirmed the same behavior on a Linux host OS.
