[Mageia-discuss] No USB with VirtualBox on Mageia?

I've just seen the following report elsewhere:

"...trying to run Virtualbox with Mageia as a host OS...
USB devices aren't recognised even with the addon pack.  I can't try
the versions from  Oracle, because they are built with Python 2.6, and
Mageia has Python 2.7. "

I do hope this is only a temporary glitch, as I was considering trying
Mageia as a replacement for Mandriva (where Virtualbox USB works 
perfectly), and I don't want to lose  VirtualBox USB functionality.
