VirtualBox 4.2.6 and VBoxHeadless VNC

Hey All,

I just upgraded VirtualBox to 4.2.6 on my headless dev server. I use VNC
with VBoxHeadless. After upgrading, I had to change the command-line
options I use for starting the VMs (which is totally fine). It seems that
now VNC is asking for a password, which I never set. Prior to upgrading,
VNC was passwordless. Attempting to connect with a blank password fails to
work as does "password". I'm not sure where to proceed from here. Anyone
know how to disable the password or what the default password is?
