There is a way to fix the problem and it's really simple. Just download a nightly build from aros.org (october 10 is good) and do these steps:
1. launch VmwAROS 0.9
2. download and burn the nightly ISO, or mount it as virtual device if you can
3. when the AROS Live CD appears on the desktop, launch VmwUpdate (start > my software > system > VmwUpdate)
4. follow on-screen instructions and agree to update everything
5. when finished, remove the ISO or the CD
6. reboot: you're ok.
I apologize for the issue. A fixed version of VmwAROS 0.9 will be available as soon as possible with the new number 0.9.1.
