I created the image on Windows using whatever what the
current VirtualBox version at the time.  I was using 3.1.4 but
after hearing complaints (from you?) on irc yesterday that it
didn't work in 3.1.6, I upgraded.  It did not restore the
state and I had to reset the virtual machine.

After the virtual machine rebooted, it was fine.

I know some people tried it on Ubuntu and ran into some issue
but I think they resolved it.  Maybe one of them will speak up.
