VirtualBox straining out a NAT

Sun's VirtualBox 1.6.2 no longer allows my NAT trick using the IP address 10.0.2.15. -Sigh- Not sure if it was a loophole in the code I was exploiting, or what. On the other hand, using the officially recommended way of sharing folders through the VirtualBox extensions works great (imagine that), unless on my machine when not running as root, then it is slower than dog-slow (but I think that is due to my machine's configuration somehow).

EDIT: It was 10.0.2.2, not 10.0.2.15, but no matter; it briefly worked earlier this evening (not sure how or why), and now has stopped working.
