Guest Additions 1.5.6 for Linux doesn't configure Xorg to use vboxvideo in Ubuntu Hardy (and probably other distros that use Xorg 7.3)

Previously Guest Additions for Linux didn't even configure mouse integration in Ubuntu Hardy, and probably any other distro that uses Xorg 7.3, but that was fixed in 1.5.6 ( ). However, it still doesn't properly configure video. It should add the line

Driver "vboxvideo"

to xorg.conf in the "Device" section. You can do this manually until it's fixed.
