It would be a bit more helpful if you could give a hint about the actual problem (for instance /var/log/vboxadd-install.log).

Alexey, here is a patch against trunk (should work against with 4.0 as well though) which should fix the issue. You can apply it to the /etc/init.d/vboxadd script on the guest and reboot (or restart the script).
