Ticket #10978 (closed defect: obsolete)
Maximized screen VM import/export from a 16:9 ratio screen to a 4:3 ratio screen doesn't resize

I'm using latest Guest additions for each host.
I've exported a VM using Linux/Debian 6.0 64-bit from a host with the same OS using Open Virtualization Format, whose window last state was mazimized.
When I imported this VM in a Windows 7 64-bit host using VirtualBox 4.2.0 and started the VM, the window appears maximized (I like it) but the VM screen area maintains the resolution of the original host, not adapting to the new host.
I think it would be better that if you import a VM, if the window state is maximized, VirtualBox should use the new window dimensions instead of the stored dimensions, otherwise if different screen sizes are used, the result is somehow odd, for example when exporting from a 16:9 ratio screen and importing to a 4:3 screen.
