FreeTSD: failed to destroy key when starting a Windows VM

Reported by: ckujau Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 3.2.8

Guest type: Windows Host type: Mac OS X


When starting a Windows (XP, NT4) VM via VBoxHeadless, the following error appears on the console:

$ VBoxHeadless -s winxp
FreeTSD: failed to destroy key: Undefined error: 0
VBoxHeadless(27472,0xb058b000) malloc: *** error for object 0x11ce50: double free
*** set a breakpoint in malloc_error_break to debug

The VM gets started normally however and is running just fine. So, despite the "error" it's just a warning. I've seen this for a while now and a quick search  reveals that this warning has been there in 3.2.6 too. I don't know about earlier releases though.

My host system (and the system in the blogentry above) is MacOS 10.6.4. I'm running in 32bit mode now, don't know if this happens for other host types too.
