Description

I installed 4.0.0 "over" an existing 3.latest, i.e. I already had existing virtual machines that run well. Using the new feature I created shortcuts on the desktop to start virtual machines. That works, but if a virtual machine is started FIRST via a desktop shortcut and THEN the VirtualBox Manager is started a hang situation is created.

This is not a condition that alt/tab or cntrl/alt/delete permits escape from - NOTHING responds to anything. ONLY a PHYSICAL power removal and reboot works, i.e. there is no response to pressing the power off button and holding it for 30 seconds.
