I don't know exactly. But I also have that feeling that there was some
freedom issue with the guest additions. 

I'm working over SSH for that purpose: What I'm doing is adding an SSH
service to my GuixSD-VM-config, having the SSH port being
opened/redirected, setting up an SSH-key and having an alias in my

Host g64
        HostName localhost
        Port 3333
        User bjoern

In that way I can quickly, passwordless login via "ssh g64" into my
GuixSD x86_64 machine and have the usual copy/paste from my host system.
For files/longer pastes I can use "scp local-file g64:~".
