clonehd on VMDK snapshot leaves Parent UUID non-zero => fixed in SVN

Description

Create a VMDK file. Use it in VBox and snapshot it a few times. Use Clone HD on the latest snapshot to create a VDI file. Look at Parent UUID field in header. Its non-zero.

This stops CloneVDI from being used and thus being able to expand the hard disk size.

This limits the oppourtunities for VMWare users to move to VBox.

  • Summary changed from clonehd on VMDK snapshot leaves Parent UUID non-zero to clonehd on VMDK snapshot leaves Parent UUID non-zero => fixed in SVN

You're right, this is a genuine, pretty long-standing bug, and it affects all image formats, not just VMDK. I like bugfixing by deleting code.

While looking at this code I spotted another bug which no one noticed so far.

Will be fixed in all applicable upcoming releases (new major versions or maintenance versions).
