Tested on Fedora 11 host with WindowsXP guest on VirtualBox 3.0.6.
Because I do not know how it works, I do not recommend it until someone else can verify that it does not present a security risk.
if you are suffered by accessing share folder too slow, maybe you can try that:
1. if your vm is running Windows,
2. if your share folder name is like that : "\\vboxsvr\<share folder>"
3. if you install windows in disk c of your vm
4. please modify c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
5. modify the line "127.0.0.1 localhost" to "127.0.0.1 localhost vboxsvr"
6. reboot vm, and you can see there's a lot of improvement.
