Package: virtualbox-ose
Version: 2.1.4-dfsg-1
Severity: minor

1. Create new virtual machine with name "Debian GNU kfreebsd"
2. Open properties window and set name to "Debian GNU/kfreebsd"
3. Click OK

Renaming failed. Error message displayed:
    Could not rename the directory '/home/al/.VirtualBox/Machines/Debian GNU kfreebsd' to '/home/al/.VirtualBox/Machines/Debian GNU/kfreebsd' to save the settings file (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND).

    Result Code: 
    NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
    IMachine {ea6fb7ea-1993-4642-b113-f29eb39e0df0}

Expected behaviour:
Slash should be forbidden in virtual machine name field.
Check for '/' symbol should be added into VBoxManage modifyvm command.
