Digging around in the VirtualBox docs I see that some OS come with guest
addtions built in, so this must be the case for the Debian (stable) that
I installed a few months back. And it must *not* be the case for the
Ubuntu that you are using for LilyDev. I was beaten back on my first
attempt to install guest additions for this Ubuntu as the relevant .iso
is not present in my VirtualBox package (on the host)

ls /usr/share/virtualbox/
nls  VBoxSysInfo.s

I *think* this is just the plain Debian package that I installed.

Looking at the thread you referenced, you seem to have a number of
improvements to LilyDev in the pipeline, but I see no mention of guest
additions - I guess everyone will want these? - are they in the newer
version? If so, I will download and give it a test if you can give me
the url ( gives 404).
