Yes, just using it as a test-bed for sid
and for a few packages that are not in squeeze.

No, although I might want to try that
in the future ....
I can ssh & scp from the sid guest
to the squeeze host ....
However, if I ssh -Y to the squeeze host
I get the invalid magic cookie message
the same as only trying to start a local
X program from the terminal in the sid guest ....
X forwarding is enabled in the squeeze host,
and I can ssh -Y into the host
from ArchLinux and Ubuntu guests
also under VirtualBox on the same host
without problems ....
