showhdinfo reports size incorrectly => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Bitt Faulk Owned by:

According to documentation, this should create a hard drive of 100MB:

VBoxManage createhd --filename /mnt/vg0/vms/Ubuntu/Ubuntu/Ubuntu.vdi --size 100

running showhdinfo against that file shows:

% VBoxManage showhdinfo  /mnt/vg0/vms/Ubuntu/Ubuntu/Ubuntu.vdi
Logical size:         104857600 MBytes

According to data from the guest OS, the hard drive is 100MB.

It seems clear, given that, that showhdinfo is meaning to claim that the logical size is "104857600 Bytes" and not "MBytes".

It's not a huge bug, but it is confusing.
