I'm aware of a problem with VirtualBox, but I haven't yet had time to identify 
the cause.  I won't have access to a VirtualBox setup for another week or two, 
so if you want to try git-bisecting to find out which commit caused the 
problem, that would be helpful.  You say that 0.9.7 works, so you'd need 
something like

  git bisect start master v0.9.7

then repeat the process of

  build, test, type "git bisect good" if the result works with VirtualBox or
  "git bisect bad" if it doesn't

until git tells you which commit introduced the problem.
