    I have a USB Bluetooth device that I want accessible to a virtual machine running under OS X. Is there a way that I can stop OS X claiming the device so that the virtual machine can access it?

    Note that I can tell the virtual machine (running from VirtualBox) that it can use the device, but that only lasts until I restart the Mac. Then I have to unplug and replug the Bluetooth adapter before the virtual machine is able to claim it.
