    initial v1  
    88 
    99Steps to reproduce: 
    10 1. Setup Guest system 
    11 2. Install Guest addititions 
    12 3. Create a shared folder on host and mount it in guest 
    13 4. Create a file within the shared folder from the Host (Windows) and set it's attributes to "hidden" (filename e.g. being ".htaccess") 
    14 5. write some data into the file through the host 
    15 6. check the file's content through the guest (all fine) 
    16 7. then, modify the file and try to save it 
    17 8. upon that, the system reports an permission error 
    18 9. when the file is opened again after that, through either the host or the guest, the file is empty 
    19  
    20 10. to verify that the error stems from the attribute, just remove the hidden attribute through the host, and save some data into file through the guest afterwards - upon which everything works as expected.

    2221Notice: This error has been in Virtualbox for at least one year. The new 4.0.0 caused me to reevaluate the version, unfortunately with no success. Here's hoping that someone with more knowledge than me gets hold of this ticket and manages to track down/fix the exact issue.
