Bluetooth gets disabled when Virtualbox Windows 10 vm is running

Hello Garuda users.

5.18.6-zen1-1-zen
Plasma 5.25.1
CPU: Intel i5-9300H (8) @ 4.100GHz
GPU: Intel CoffeeLake-H GT2 [UHD Graphics 630]
Virtualbox 6.1.34 r15063

Bluetooth works fine normally but as soon as Windows 10 boots completely in Oracle Virtualbox ,the bluetooth connections are dropped , and KDE bluetooth widget shows "No devices found"
If I press enable bluetooth , then also nothing happens .

But most of the time when the Windows OS shutdown ,it automatically re-enables the bluetooth and if it does not enables I have to run command in root

modprobe -r btusb
modprobe btusb

Now I have three questions

  1. Is it expected behavior ?
  2. If it is then how to prevent windows from snatching my bluetooth connections ?
  3. If no then how to permanently remove this bug ?
  1. No
  2. Make sure USB devices are not being filtered (sent to the guest OS)
  3. Depends on cause
