Anti-theft traceback on booting 553

Trying to boot build 553 in a VirtualBox environment (testing fix in 
[1]), I see a failure in the activation code (I'm copying this manually):

    /, line 17, in run
    from initutil import activate_fail
    ImportError: cannot import name activate_fail

which suggests that even if I fix the error it's just going to fail 
anyway, it's just not telling me nicely.

Any suggestions on how to get past this point while running on a virtual 
machine?  I've tried mapping a USB key into the VirtualBox client with a 
build 553 upgrade/install image, but it didn't do the activation, 
producing the same traceback.

Almost there, he thinks,
