Ultimate cause: The VirtualBox.xml file had a hidden attribute which I'm certain I never set. Being the admin, I don't need to hide things from myself, seeing as enable viewing hidden files.

Deleting the file forcing VBox to re-create it, is an alternate fix and updates the xml with the correct version and heading tags though one needs to hack it to recognise existing machines and drives.

Please if still relevant with VBox 4.0.4.
