   I have tested the last 4.0.4 and works fine. Thanks for your efforts !

   The only problem I've found is that I can not seem to be able to see
all the traffic flowing in a host-only interface. According to the
documentation, I would be able to see all the traffic in a vboxnetX

    I tried with linux, with it I'm able to see that all traffic (I have
to do an 'ifconfig vboxnet0' by hand before launching the virtual
machines connected with the vboxnet0 network) between two virtual
machines connected to a vboxnet0 host-only interface.
