[alpine-user] virtualbox installation not persistent after alpine-setup

Hi there,

I have installed Alpine in Oracle Virtualbox. After that I have run
setup-alpine and entered the following values (among others):
sda; sys;
So partitions are created.

Then I entered "reboot", but all my settings got lost, also root forgot my
provided password. I expected Alpine to save all my settings, but it did
I found the tool "lbu", but there the manual says:
"All your modifications have already been directly written to your HDD."

So what's wrong with it?
