Description Andreas Proteus 2010-08-05 12:28:03 UTC
When attempting to drag and drop a file from a windows guest it fails with a message: 

/<some randomnumber>/<file-name> does not exist.

Clearly it thinks that the draged file is is under /,  instead of 
under /tmp/VMwareDnD/  where it actually is (I checked and the file is there!)

Drag-n-drop from the host to any windows guest works normally.

As an experiment I installed the package directly from the bundle and this problem does not happen. 
So it must be something with the ebuild (or may be with the vmware-modules-238 ebuild)

Reproducible: Always
