Bug Description

Binary package hint: virtualbox-ose

The udev rules shipped by virtualbox-ose apply a RUN script on usb interfaces and devices. However the rules specify
RUN=
rather than
RUN+=
so all other scripts added by previous rules get usurped.

This means things like my scanner (which relies on a script added by the sane udev rules) doesn't work.

The solution is to simply replace all RUN= with RUN+= in the udev rules - the rules should add the script, now set this script only.
