Ok, three questions:

  1.) Did you log out after adding yourself to the group?  If not, open a
  new terminal emulator and run the command again.

  2.) What version of VirtualBox is this?  virtualbox-ose-3.1.2 and above
  do not require procfs(5); lesser versions do.

  3.) Are your kernel / userland in sync?
