Ticket #11021 (closed defect: fixed)
Guest display is offset on retina display when 3d acceleration is enabled => Fixed in SVN

|Host type:||Mac OS X|
Guest is Windows 7 with the experimental WDDM display driver (not the basic Direct3D driver) installed. Host is OS X 10.8.2 on a MacBook Pro with Retina display. When Aero is activated, the Windows 7 display suddenly gets pushed up by about 25 pixels. It's like instead of drawing the Win 7 video driver output in the content area of the window, VirtualBox starts drawing it at the origin of the window so that it covers the title bar. Screenshots are attached.
This affects mouse interaction too, mouse position is registered on where the window content SHOULD be, not where it is. So you must click below a button to register a click on the button.
Interestingly enough, if you move the VB window to an external (non-retina) display, it corrects itself. If you move the window back onto the Retina display, the problem reoccurs.
This also happens on my Windows 8 guest.
