I'm not using VirtualBox, but I know the port has a startupitem, and even a kernel extension. So just one thing I'd double-check: have you stopped the old startupitem and started the new one? I'm not sure how the startupitem interacts with the kernel extension, so I might even try restarting the whole machine, just to make sure the current version of the kernel extension is loaded.
