Full screen mode cut off by Apple menu bar

In VB 4.3+ the title bar of Max OSX 10.9 cuts into the full screen mode of a running Windows 7 VM, pushing the Bottom bar of Windows off of the bottom of the screen and displaying the Apple menu bar at the top. Full screen works perfectly in VB 4.2.18 on Mac OSX 10.9. I have seen other users report this problem with 1 solution being to change Mac OSX 10.9 to use spaces like the older versions of Mac did (removing the menu bar from a second screen). This works also, but then the new spaces functionality is lost. This is not needed when using VB 4.2.18 (I can run the new spaces with the menu bar on each space, and still use full screen mode).
