I have just downloaded VirtualBox-1.6.2-OSX_x86.dmg.bz2 however after extracting the file the image fails to mount, anyone seen this problem?

Remove the .bz2-extension and try again extracting the file.

Why are they not fixing this? It can be a show stopper for average mac users if the downloaded file just doesn't work?

I was about to just stick with vmware, until I figured out, the downloaded bz2 was actually a dmg file with redundant extension.

Since the developers are reading in this forum, I'm also wondering why they don't fix it. Maybe they aren't aware of the "bug" because there is no ticket in the bugtracker.

We are aware of the problem. The downloads will (hopefully) shortly move to another place and fix this in the process.
