Package: virtualbox-ose-guest-dkms
Version: 3.1.0-dfsg-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

During install one gets the following error:
Setting up virtualbox-ose-guest-dkms (3.1.0-dfsg-1) ...
Adding Module to DKMS build system                     

Error! Invalid number of arguments passed.
Usage: add -m <module> -v <module-version>

This is due to a reference in the postinst and prerm scripts.
both still refer to the virtualbox-ose-guest-source package name
