Adding devices to virtual SCSI controller will use reserved port 7

Description

Hi! Fantastic work on VBox, thank you so much! I think the V4 is better than VMware :)

If this guy is right -  http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=38319&start=0 - i.e. that the SCSI port 7 is reserved for the host adapter ID (or something more accurate, not a SCSI-savvy guy myself), then there's a bug in the interface when adding devices to the virtual SCSI controller. It will automatically assign the new device to port 7 when ports 0 thru 6 are already occupied, and you end up with missing devices in your OS (at least in my Ubuntu OS ;)

Woops, sorry about filling the host, guess the host wouldn't matter here, although the guest might.
