ActiveSync 4.5 not working with VB 1.5.2 (Linux) and WinXP Guest

Well, what should i say - That headline is the essence.
Some Details: Running the official VirtualBox 1.5.2 binaries from innotek on an Ubuntu 7.10 Linux ("Gutsy Gibbon"), with installed guest additions, trying to use ActiveSync 4.5, which has successfully been installed into the VM running Windows XP Pro SP2. When i attach my WindowsMobile-Device to the USB port,it produces some output into the Linux syslog, but won't be recognized in the Windows VM. I just can't connect, although ActiveSync tells me that USB is generally speaking available. It just can't see the WinMobile-Device.
I also tried to stop Linux from using the device automagically by disabling the loading o the rndis_host kernel module, but to no avail. I also searched the web and found a line whic seemingly enables /proc/bus/usb access for hald, and as far my italian serves me the original author was successful with that - but not me :(
Here's the line:
# added for Virtualbox to work with Activesync unter virtualized WinXP none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=46,devmode=664 0 0
Any hints on this one?
Thanks for your great work, and pls don't hesitate to contact me in case you want me to provide additional informations - I'll be happy to help out if I can.
