Anyone running virtualbox?

Hey Guys

I spent the last 2 hours installing virtualbox on squeeze and have run into a little problem. I can't add users to the vboxusers group because ther isn't and vbox'anything' group. The Debian wiki doesn't help, probably because it is out of date, so wonder how others got it working.

I have these packages installed

ii virtualbox-guest-additions 3.0.10-1 guest additions iso image for VirtualBox ii virtualbox-ose 3.0.10-dfsg-2 x86 virtualization solution - base binaries ii virtualbox-ose-guest-source 3.0.12-dfsg-1 x86 virtualization solution - guest addition module source ii virtualbox-ose-guest-utils 3.0.10-dfsg-2 x86 virtualization solution - non-X11 guest utilities ii virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 3.0.10-dfsg-2 x86 virtualization solution - X11 guest utilities un virtualbox-ose-modules <none> (no description available) ii virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6-amd64 2:2.6.30-4 PC virtualization solution for Linux 2.6 on AMD64 rc virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.30-1-amd64 2.6.30+3.0.2-dfsg-3 PC virtualization solution for Linux 2.6.30 on AMD64 ii virtualbox-ose-modules-2.6.30-2-amd64 3.0.12-dfsg-1+2.6.30-8 VirtualBox modules for Linux (kernel 2.6.30-2-amd64) ii virtualbox-ose-qt 3.0.10-dfsg-2 x86 virtualization solution - Qt based user interface ii virtualbox-ose-source 3.0.12-dfsg-1 x86 virtualization solution - kernel module source

I am currently upgrading all of the 3.0.10-dfsg-2 versions to the
sid 3.0.12-dfsg-1 versions in the hope that they will fix things.

<rant on>

In the not to distant past, packages didn't go from sid to testing unless they worked. Buggy maybe but they at least ran, to a point. That seems to have changed in the last few months. Is that a new policy? If so, maybe testing should be to 'could-not-fixed-in-sid'.
