shared folder cannot be accessed after resume from hibernate on different host

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
I have a machine at home (win7 64bit), and office (winxp 32bit) both running virtualbox-4.0.6 r71416 I have an external USB drive on which I had the fedora-15 x86_64, image, drive letter T:. The image also resides on T: I have configured a machine-folder which is accessible as /media/sf_T_DRIVE When I leave home, I hibernate the vmachine, and resume at work. The hibernate works, and machine can resume and access network etc. However the drive mount exists, but contents are not accessible.
Attempts to remount:
It is possible to stop processes using the drive (with fuser, kill), and unmount the drive. but remounting has not succeeded. Even on attempt to add/remove/reconfigure machine-folder.
It is possible to rmmod vboxsf, but after doing so, trying to reinit the vboxsf using modprobe will complain that it is not possible to insmod the vboxsf again. It is possible to rmmod vboxvideo, but not possible to rmmod vboxguest, (if it matters).
At this point no option but to reboot, if sf_T_DRIVE is to be regained. defeating the whole point of hibernate.
I will get more logs next time, but this is fairly reproducible.
I will capture logs when this happens again.
