Have been testing Stretch with alternate inits -- sysvinit and runit to
be specific -- in Virtualbox on a Wheezy host while leaving systemd
files alone. Not even "pinning" them. Well decided to see what
removing them would do. I followed the "Variant" option instructions

openbox, etc. Same problem if I did the nosystemd thing with a
default install of the LXDE desktop which strangely after would boot to
a terminal for login instead of the graphic display manager.
Anyone got any ideas. Everything works fine if GuestAdditions not
