Display issue with WinXP guest after 4.2 upgrade

I have my MacBook connected to an external monitor running a split display. When I boot my Windows XP guest in the second display, it appears the graphics buffering isn't right. Most of the screen will show black while the preview window in the VBox (on primary display) shows the normal display. If I refresh the XP desktop it will show the entire display but parts of the desktop start turning black very soon. It's like the display isn't showing the correct layer in the FB?
Move the guest window into the laptop display and all is good. Configure external display to be a mirror and all is OK. This started when I upgraded to 4.2. It was that way before I upgraded Guest Additions on the guest (upgrading the guest additions did not change behavior).
