That's not surprising. Running as a virtualbox host is not something
that is well tested. As you can see from the roadmap WWW page, there
are a few things that are hard to test because I simply don't have them
in use anywhere, like GELI and AppleTalk. Another of those is a machine
hosting virtualbox VMs.

They might well be entirely redundant, as you say. I'll add looking at
them afresh to the to-do list. It may well be simply the case that they
can be deleted outright from the target, and enabled by presets. That's
certainly the design on the running-as-guest side. (There seems to be a
slight bug in 80-virtualbox-guest.preset, considering this. Hmmm.)
