Probably not a FreeBSD specific issue, but my legacy XP VM had an issue.
When viewing the Settings screen, a warning came up saying invalid VM name.
Checking that field revealed a blank name.  Reentering the correct one
allowed me to proceed with settings changes, but after closing and reopening
the main Vbox GUI, then Settings tab again the VM name was again blank.

I then created a new XP VM with an identical name which took.  At first this
seemed odd, but I see Virtualbox changed it's configuration directory
location to perhaps a more Windows friendly.  I ended up deleting the old
configuration and it seems to be working correctly with the new one.

Thanks for the work,
