I'm really sorry Steve but I'm just going to have leave the bug report that got VB excised from the stable release here as a warning to other forum users:

virtualbox: might not be suitable for stable releases due to lack of cooperation from upstream on security support for older releases

It was removed for a very good reason and probably shouldn't be used. By anybody.
