Bridged network: packages shown only from guest to host

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I'm using VirtualBox 4.0.2 (r69518) on Ubuntu Lucid (64bit, kernel: 2.6.32-27-generic) host. The guest is an Ubuntu based os. (64bit, kernel: 2.6.22), has one network adapter, which is bridged (PCnet-FAST III). The eth0 interface on host is in promiscuous mode.
When I send 'ping' from host to guest or from guest to host, on the host tcpdump shows only the incoming packets, although on guest it shows packages in both directions.
I've read a similar problem in bug #8076, and applied the patch to file VBoxNetFlt-linux.c, but the patch did not correct the problem, moreover now on the guest os too: tcpdump does not show packages from guest to host.
