I am thinking that this is host side code issue.  I have tried with 
several different guest addition versions going back about two months 
and it does not change the effect.  Windows guests don't seem to be 
effected only Linux (X11)

Host is a derivative of Debian with all kinds of personal code and using 
nVidia 331 drivers. That said it should be the same on an Ubuntu 14.04 
or Mint 17 host. 3D enabled.  Disabling 3D in the settings which reverts 
to software rendering and the resize works as it should, but that is not 
acceptable as you well know. Processor goes nuts!
