Menu shows "Pause" but VM is suspended

Reported by: monthan Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.6 Keywords: suspended pause menu disk space full
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Windows


I was running a couple of Solaris 10 VMs on a Windows Vista host. One of them was downloading data from the Internet (actually, doing a Solaris 11 Auto install into a "disk drive" that was dynamically growing.)

Whilst doing the the host disk became full, and a VB popup appeared saying the system was suspended until you cleared some space.

fair enough...

I cleared some space.

When I went to the Machine Menu in the VBox GUI, it was displaying "Pause" not "Resume". This was incorrect.

When I clicked "Pause" the system resumed execution.

Well, the meaning of "pause" and "suspend" is not that much different. In VBox slang this is more or less the same. You clicked on "pause" and the system resumed execution. The reason is that the "pause" item was active, clicking on it unchecked it and continued the execution of the VM.
