For what it is worth, I gave up on Virtualbox 5, it just isn't
stable (bug free) enough yet to waste time on. I went back to
Virtualbox 4 (whatever the latest one is 4.3.38 or something, though
that's at least one update beyond when I reverted) which works much better.
I do host it on linux though, not windows - I will sink quite low when
needed, but not that low.
But beware, vpox 5 changes the vm config format, so anything that
vpox 5 has ever run on won't work again with vbox 4 - fortunately,
the disc image formats are compat, so all that's needed is to delete
the screwed machine config, and make a new vbox client using the same disc
images as before - a bit tedious to redo all the virtualbox config
but better than running vpox 5.
The only problem I have now is that it keeps trying to convince me that
there's a newer better version (5.0.20 at the minute) that I should be
upgrading to. Blah!
