VirtualBox logfile in root directory

Description

I use VirtualBox for two years now without problems. Unfortunately, since a few weeks every launch of VirtualBox creates a logfile (2010-05-01-10-30-36.015-VirtualBox-6995.log) in the root directory of my file system. I don't think that this is the right directory for logfiles. Is there any idea to change this behavior?

Thank you in advance for your support!

Unfortunately, there is nothing interesting in the log file (see attachment).

Please upload the VBox.log file from a VM session. Unfortunately we had accidentally a debug version of the Mac OS X dmg on our download server for 1 day when 3.1.6 was released. Maybe you installed such a version.

Thank you for your hint concerning the debug version of VirtualBox. I downloaded and installed it again, and don't have anymore such logfiles in my root directory.

Problem solved … Thank you!
