Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.22 network activated and deactivated every a few minutes problem.

When I upgrade the Oracle Virtualbox to 4.3.22, I got "connection 'Wired connection 1' activated" and  "connection 'Wired connection 1' deactivated" in my guest OS, Kubuntu 14.04. In syslog, the following messages are repeated. This happens every a few minutes.

Activate and deactivate network frequently
Host OS: Windows 7
Guest OS: Kubuntu 14.04
Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.22r98236
Also I found the same problem with CentOS: https://www.centos.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=50&t=51112

But, this doesn't happen Oracle Virtualbox 4.3.20r96997. So I reverted to 4.3.20r96997.

Same problem here since updating to VBox 4.3.22. Windows 7 Host and Kubuntu 14.04.2 LTS have all updates and I reinstalled the latest Guest Additions. Next I am going to try to load the apt package version of Guest Additions.

Backdated to 4.3.20 and the problem went away. Similar issues reported on the virtualbox forums, on many different client O/S, so I'm confident this is a VBox issue, not a Kubuntu issue. https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=66067

Hi!

I had the same problem. After upgrading VBox to 4.3.30 it is gone :)
