Default Bug#505592: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64: Debian packaged modules are different version than vbox, downgrade installed version

Package: virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64
Version: 2.6.26+1.6.2-dfsg-4
Severity: normal

Virtualbox-ose and virtualbox-ose-modules are different versions.

An `apt-get update ; apt-get dist-upgrade` today replaced my current modules with an outdated copy:

Preparing to replace virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64 1.6.6-dfsg-3+2.6.26-8
(using .../virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64_2.6.26+1.6.2-dfsg-4_amd64.deb)
Unpacking replacement virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64 ...

Setting up virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.26-1-amd64 (2.6.26+1.6.2-dfsg-4) ...

This leads to different versions of virtualbox and virtualbox modules:

Forcing the user to repair the installation by rebuilding from source before virtualbox can be used.
