Yes, I do. 
I have these:

      <MachineEntry uuid="{75bfc298-7ac0-4ca5-91fb-9f031ee0a5a3}" 
	src="/home/tol/SailfishOS/mersdk/Sailfish OS Build Engine/Sailfish OS Build Engine.vbox"/>
      <MachineEntry uuid="{1b641bc9-9c41-47fe-998a-8b8e91810c5b}" 
	src="/home/tol/SailfishOS/emulator/Sailfish OS Emulator/Sailfish OS Emulator.vbox"/>
      <MachineEntry uuid="{aa96b162-4811-475c-bb57-8147302d6178}" 
      <MachineEntry uuid="{1944d1bb-99ff-4ac8-8507-1475fdbcfa6d}" 
	src="/home/thomas/SailfishOS/mersdk/Sailfish OS Build Engine/Sailfish OS Build Engine.vbox"/>
      <MachineEntry uuid="{f8bc1e14-f8e1-48ed-a1a0-e51cd94296da}" 
	src="/home/thomas/SailfishOS/emulator/Sailfish OS Emulator OS Emulator OS Emulator"/>

I have no idea about what to keep and what to remove. 
Trying with the maintenance tool doesn't really get me any further. In the Add/Remove 
I don't really see what to do, and when trying "Update components" it prints "Cannot 
retrieve remote tree. No package source set for this applications"

Med venlig hilsen / Best regards
