I had read that page, and the help screens from within VBox.
They did not help.

The problem turned out to be a mouse.
I have a Kensington trackball USB mouse.
Vbox saw it, but it was greyed-out like the memory stick.

There was no vbox filter for it, so I added one.
When I fired up vbox it stole the mouse and locked it.
I ended up using a PS/2 to USB adapter and removing the vbox mouse filter.

All is now well.
