Blackberry does not connect in VMWare / Missing Sync problem

After upgrading Missing Sync to the latest version, I stopped being able to connect my Blackberry to Blackberry Desktop Manager in Windows XP running in VMWare on Mac OS X. The RIM composite device appears in the USB menu, but connecting to it does nothing. The culprits are two background Missing Sync processes running in Mac OS X. I used Activity Monitor to quit those processes, and my Blackberry connected in VMWare with no problems.
