I use Windows 7 as host, and Ubuntu 12.10 Remix (Ubuntu with pure Gnome) as guest.
Everything working ok. I installed VBoxAdditions in regular way - using corresponding command in VirtualBox VM manager, and then running
VBoxLinuxAdditions.run script from mounted drive. Installation process also seems like OK.
/var/log/vboxadd-install.log I see this:
