INSTRUCTIONS
============
 
This program can be used to reproduce an alleged buy in VirtualBox guest filesystem.
Tested on Ubuntu 13.04 daily with virtualbox 4.1.22_Ubuntur80657 on a Ubuntu 12.04 guest.
 
The guest had vboxguestfs mounted on /vagrant
The host exported a directory ~/.cache/tarmac/branches/checkbox/trunk to /vagrant
The guest was in /vagrant/plainbox (a sub-directory) - this failure is not
present in the root of the shared folder.
