VBoxManage startvm does not shut down VM properly.

When I start my VM via the VirtualBox GUI or via VirtualBox --comment "MyVM" --startvm 42217cd0-84e1-4e80-568c-72ebd2e4925c, everything starts up and remains fine.

When I start via VBoxManage startvm "MyVM", it starts up once, but afterwards, I cannot start any instance of VirtualBox via "VBoxManage startvm", "VirtualBox --startvm" and not even the "VirtualBox" GUI.

So it seems "VBoxManage startvm" does not shut down the VM properly (VBoxSVC keeps running) while the other two methods work.

I did not have the problem in Virtualbox 2.

To conclude, this bug breaks automatic startup for many users. See for more people reporting that problem.

Without a log file it's pretty much impossible to do anything with this bug report. I can't believe that it is generally broken, as the GUI uses the same API to start VMs.
