Klaus, I'm sorry I wasn't more informative about this issue here. The thing
is it's been going on for four years and I have reported it in the past on
bugtracker. It happens/happened on 3 different iMacs a 2007, 2011 and my
current 2012 machine. When it happens I just fix it by disabling xv video
or install VLC and switch VLC to x11 video. I doubt I still have log files
to send. If someone really wants to check it they can try an install of
Xubuntu 12.04 - 13.10 daily build and try and run Parole or VLC with the
video set to System Default. I know they are working on the Macs graphics
and I'm hoping some things will be better. I am currently running VB 4.2.51
on a late 2012 27" iMac with an NVDIA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680MX. But as I
said, this happens with either AMD or NVIDIA iMacs. If I install another
guest soon I will send the log.
