Certain applications redraw slowly in Windows Guest on Fedora host

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

I'm running WindowsXP SP3 guest with all current patches, on Fedora 15 host. Everything appears to work fine with two exceptions:

A CRM application called 'RightNow' tends to redraw considerably more slowly under the Windows guest than it did when running on native hardware.

When using WebEx, if I use the right-mouse click to open a context menu in a shared application, WebEx goes absolutely bonkers for about 20 seconds, before the menu finally pops up. This also does not happen when running the same application on bare metal.

The native hardware is a Core i3-based laptop with 3 GB of ram. The Fedora host is running on a Core i7, with 64-bit Fedora 15 installed, and VirtualBox 4.1.8. I've also installed the guest additions, and have enabled both 2D and 3D acceleration in an effort to try to resolve this issue.

I'm willing to provide any logs or troubleshooting information you need.
