Not to doubt you, but you made sure to put your group id in 
devgid=some_number?

Hmmm, the permissions stay for me.

I too struggled to get USB to work, it seems to be pretty lacking with 
Linux support in VirtualBox, which is a big downfall. Although, I had a 
lot of issues with permissions with VMware Server as well when I ran it. 
I guess pick your poison.

This process works for me though, so I'm not sure what else to suggest 
to help you out.
