Which was the previous version of VirtualBox you used?

Might this section of the user manual be relevant to what you are seeing?  Configuring the maximum resolution of guests when using the graphical frontend

Referring to configuring in Xorg.conf? Ubuntu has really depreciated the use of Xorg.conf... and not having the available resolutions just display is new. In my previous install i just a pick for 1680x150.

What is the output if you do

$ ps aux | grep VBoxClient

in a terminal in your guest X session? You should see "VBoxClient --display" in the output. If not, does running

$ VBoxClient-all

as the logged in user (not as root!) make a difference? Or if it doesn't start, what output does

$ VBoxClient --clipboard --nodaemon

produce?

I have to say that I am also somewhat perplexed by the fact that according to Xorg.0.log vboxvideo is built for the X.Org Server 1.6 pre-release, though judging from the log everything else seems to be working. I should install an Ubuntu 10.04 guest myself though to check that.

Ah, we are building using a version of xorg-server.h that was originally generated for version 1.5.99. Confusing but not otherwise a problem.
