E_ACCESSDENIED for 'GUI/UpdateDlgWinID' when starting a VM

When starting any VM now from the Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager, I get a dialog with the message below. The VMs start OK. 58720551 is the "Oracle VM VirtualBox Manager" window, which has been running for 3 days. There is no log of this error in the VBox.log, but I've attached one anyway.

The error is:

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit.

Could not set extra data because someone refused the requested change of 'GUI/UpdateDlgWinID' to '58720551'.


Result Code: E_ACCESSDENIED (0x80070005) Component: VirtualBox Interface: IVirtualBox {c28be65f-1a8f-43b4-81f1-eb60cb516e66}
