Where did you buy that crystal ball? I'd like to have it too.
Or even better three or four of them, just to be sure...

That was direct hit, man! I increased tmpfs size for this guest
to 128MB and suddenly all works. F-Prot needed ~38MB in /tmp.
But how could I have known from that disinformative error message
it had something to do with /tmp ???

I'm going to write this to Frisk Software (company behind fprot).
I reported this error to their hotline and all I got is just
a standard bunch of auto-replies (check your proxy, firewall,
network cable, keyboard, etc)...

But thanks to valuable support from this mailing list, the problem
now is solved. Thank you, all who replied and tried to help me.
