Extra IDE Controller included in OVF export

Description

When exporting an appliance on VirtualBox 3.2.6 (and perhaps 3.2.x more generally) that has only 1 IDE controller defined (with only virtual disk attached), per the attached screenshot, the resulting OVF file nonetheless has two IDE controllers defined:

<Item>
  <rasd:Address>0</rasd:Address>
  <rasd:Caption>ideController0</rasd:Caption>
  <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>
  <rasd:ElementName>ideController0</rasd:ElementName>
  <rasd:InstanceID>3</rasd:InstanceID>
  <rasd:ResourceSubType>PIIX4</rasd:ResourceSubType>
  <rasd:ResourceType>5</rasd:ResourceType>
</Item>
<Item>
  <rasd:Address>1</rasd:Address>
  <rasd:Caption>ideController1</rasd:Caption>
  <rasd:Description>IDE Controller</rasd:Description>
  <rasd:ElementName>ideController1</rasd:ElementName>
  <rasd:InstanceID>4</rasd:InstanceID>
  <rasd:ResourceSubType>PIIX4</rasd:ResourceSubType>
  <rasd:ResourceType>5</rasd:ResourceType>
</Item>

When this appliance is imported on VirtualBox 3.1.x (i.e., older versions), the import fails because 3.1.x appears not to support imports of appliances with multiple IDE controllers. A workaround is to delete the second Item element above from the OVF file prior to import.

Older versions of VirtualBox (3.1.x I *think*) did not include this additional IDE controller when exporting appliances.

Happy to provide additional details as needed.
