That's a bit of a kicker. Would it be possible to have a complete icon set which is fixed and doesn't change for the tools? If you would like an icon to show for the for any theme that is lacking a drive-removable-media-usb icon definition, you can place a symlink to whatever icon you want in /usr/...

Re: removal virtualbox 32 bit

Only the guest additions are presinstalled, which are still required.for.the 32 bit.guest system to work with all the vb features like folder sharing and matching the display resolution to the vb window size.
