vmware-guestd (VIX) log

I have a VIX Perl script I'm using that creates a shell script, copies to a (Linux) VM, runs it, and gets a file with the results. When I called the VMLoginInGuest function I get the error:

Authentication failure or insufficient permissions in guest operating system(3015)

Upgrading the vmware tools version (to v4.0) on the target VM got me past this problem.

The above error was mostly misleading. So, I'd like to know if there is a log file somewhere or some switch I could turn on to get more information about why the vmware-guestd (or whatever process it is) rejects a request.

Any and all information would be greatly appreciated.
