I have version 4.1.22. However I do get VBox to appear as one of my
normal upgrades so I am surprised that I am not up to date. But note
that all my other distros[1] in VBox are working properly with the GA's
including auto-resize. Only Xubuntu 12.10 is failing. I have just
downloaded Kubuntu 12.10 so let's see if that one is OK.


[1] Kubuntu12.04, Xubuntu12.04, Mint 13 KDE, Mint 13 Xfce.
