windows xp guest stops updated screen after switching from scaled to default

Reported by: buddyglass Owned by:
Priority: major Component: other
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.8 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Mac OS X

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Host OS: OS X 10.6.8 Hardware: MacBook Pro6,2 (Intel HD Graphics + Nvidia GeForce GT 330M) Guest OS: Windows XP SP3 2D and 3D acceleration both enabled

When I start up in "default" mode (i.e. Windows XP is shown in a non-full-screen window without any scaling) I can press "Apple-C" to switch to scale mode. This is successful and everything works as expected in scale mode. However, if I hit "Apple-C" again to switch back to default mode, I lose all screen output in the Guest OS Window. It still accepts keyboard and mouse *input*, but the screen isn't updated to reflect the affects of that input. Switching to a different application in OS X (that covers up the Virtual Box window) and then switching back to the VirtualBox window will cause the screen updates to be displayed.

Host type can be changed to all, this issue affects Windows XP guests on Windows 7 host as well

OSX 10.6.8, hosting WinXP, no 3D acceleration

Behavior occurs most notably coming out of scaled mode.

On OSX, notice that if I bring up the Dashboard and click back and forth between the guest window, the window will update and so it's possible to navigate to a proper guest shutdown. You must exit the host process to escape the problem altogether as a simple restart of guest is not sufficient.
