Ticket #8943 (closed defect: fixed)
VM is "inaccessible"

|Version:||VirtualBox 4.0.8||Keywords:||4.0.8 inaccessible logout reboot|
I am referring to the same problem as can be found here: http://forum.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=41725&start=0#p187779
Not sure if it is the 4.0.8 Guest Editions or not. Fact is that once I close (i.e. Logout) the KDE 4.6 on OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64 with standard updates in place, I get this problem. One fix is to close the Virtualbox Control Panel and then edit the Virtual machine .vbox file and remove the value between quotes of VersionEx under <GuestProperties>. The value assigned appears to be incorrect!? The problem will return upon next start-up of guest OS and the login out and back in to KDE or rebooting.
<GuestProperty name="/VirtualBox/GuestAdd/VersionEx" value=" " timestamp="1306076154841406000" flags=""/>
Starting Virtualbox Control Panel after having edited this with kwrite with Virtualbox Control Panel closed and having saved the file fixes the issue which tells me this is a bug. I run Windows 7 Ultimate FPP as Guest under OpenSUSE 11.4 x86_64. The problem only appears to take plays once restarting Linux or logging out of KDE. Very puzzling indeed.
I will try older versions of Virtualbox 4.0.6 etc. to see if I can replicate the problem. Fact is that I am not the only person experiencing this problem and the other person reported this under Ubuntu and not OpenSUSE host. He also uses Windows 7 64 bit as guest!
