Triple buffering (on host) causes display curruption inside Windows guest using WDDM

Reported by: Quad5Ny Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: WDDM
Version: VirtualBox 4.1.14 Keywords: Tripple buffer, WDDM, Aero
Cc: Guest type: Windows
Host type: Windows

Description

Triple buffering causes display corruption on guest machines using the WDDM driver. This is most apparent while using a the Windows Aero theme on a guest.

Users may enable Triple buffering in their graphics control panel and and not realize that is the reason the VirtualBox is not displaying correctly.

Note: As far as I can tell this effects all VirtualBox releases that have WDDM support.

Please also attach a VM log file here. Does this happen for Linux guests with 3D desktop (compiz, whatever) enabled as well?

Attached 2 Logs; VBox_A.log is w/ Triple buffering on, VBox_B.log is w/ Triple buffering off.

Both have the VM powering on, loading Windows 7 with WDDM driver and then powering off.

Installed Ubuntu 11.10. Unity 3D and Compiz effects seem to work just fine with Triple Buffering on.
