Yes, vmshared is a special filesystem provided by the VirtualBox.  It
gets compiled and installed as a kernel module when you install the
VirtualBox tools on the client machine.  It allows one folder/directory
of the host machine to be seen as a filesystem on the client, allowing
file sharing.

I tried mounting it under /mnt, but the results are the same.  I did
not try to mount it through dolphin or other GUI.  I have no idea what
the GUI does that a simple command-line mount does not.
