comment What does cd [-L] [-P] [-e] [-@] do?
It helps to know ahead of time that cd is a shell builtin command, which means that its help is available with the help command instead of man.

Thanks for checking. It does look related to that.

comment Safely close virtualbox machine on host reboot
Works like a charm (Windows XP guest), except it seems to throw out a VERR_INVALID_PARAMETER on the host side if I am logged in via RDC as the user given in the script, and subsequently the guest keeps running.

comment Safely close virtualbox machine on host reboot
Has reboot recently become more polite? The man page for reboot in 12.10 says "When called with --force or when in runlevel 0 or 6, this tool invokes the reboot(2) system call itself and directly reboots the system. Otherwise this simply invokes the shutdown(8) tool with the appropriate arguments."; and the man page for shutdown says "Once TIME has elapsed, shutdown sends a request to the init(8) daemon to bring the system down into the appropriate runlevel."
