Package: virtualbox-guest-dkms
Version: 4.2.10-dfsg-1
Severity: normal

After upgrading to jessie, linux-image 3.9-1-686-pae was installed.

When I select this kernel via grub, when booted into it, I can't mount
vboxsf shared folders.

$ uname -a
Linux elided-debian 3.9-1-686-pae #1 SMP Debian 3.9.6-1 i686 GNU/Linux
$ sudo VBoxControl sharedfolder list
Oracle VM VirtualBox Guest Additions Command Line Management Interface 
Version 4.2.10_Debian
(C) 2008-2013 Oracle Corporation

Shared Folder mappings (1):

01 - Temp
$ sudo mount -t vboxsf Temp /mnt
/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such device

If I boot back into linux-image 3.2.0-4-686-pae, I have no
problem mounting.

I can see nothing obvious in dmesg or syslog to explain the issue.
