Yes. I have just reinstalled - long time overdue - but kept my $HOME. And 
for historical reasons that used  to be 'tol' ;)
The weird thing is, that this error occurred *after* I had had wiped 
~/.config/SailfishOS-SDK and ~/.config/VirtualBox, so I don't know how it 
would have retained info about that installation..?

Well, isn't that just plain stupid? ;)

Probably the latter. Anyhow, now it seems to be working perfectly.
