Default Bug#498381: /dev/vboxdrv is root:root 660 - should be roor:vboxdrv?

Package: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.26+1.6.2-dfsg-3


On a fresh lenny with virtualbox-ose and the modules just installed (both from the archive):

$ virtualbox
WARNING: /dev/vboxdrv not writable for some reason. If you recently added the
current user to the vboxusers group then you have to logout and
re-login to take the change effect.

You will not be able to start VMs until this problem is fixed.

Hrm, but I did do that...

$ groups
users disk cdrom sudo plugdev vboxusers sbuild

Hmm, yes...

$ ls -l /dev/vboxdrv
crw-rw---- 1 root root 10, 60 9. Sep 14:46 /dev/vboxdrv


Shouldn't that be root:vboxusers? Otherwise the hint to vboxusers might
not make that much sense :-)
