I committed a fix in ESbox rev 2424 for a problem I did encounter
when running these steps -- if you follow the steps from a clean
workspace, and the executable is already valid, and you select
a machine name, then edit the executable (again to something
valid), then the machine name would get cleared out.

Let me know if that has any relation to what you saw here.

Could you clarify the steps taken?  Did you use the Browse...
button to select the executable?

There is a short delay after you set the executable before it
detects what machine names are available.  If the selection box
remains empty forever, then VBoxManage might not be working properly.
Is there anything in the Error Log?
