[Pkg-virtualbox-devel] Bug#621061: locks daemon startup directory

Package: virtualbox-ose
Version: 4.0.4-dfsg-1+b1
Severity: normal
File: VBoxSVC

Run virtualbox from some subdirectory, then close it. Check open files
from various VBox* services that are kept running behind. The
running directory from application directory is still open and is kept busy,
locking the particular filesystem where the directory is located.

This can be worked around by using appropriate flags daemon(3) flags or
just changing the directory before forking. Please fix.
