seamless mode straddles dual head monitors (windows guest - linux host)

Windowed mode and fullscreen both appear to work, although switching from one to the other requires going into the display properties and re-setting the display dimensions. I'm using archlinux, kernel 2.6.24-ARCH x86_64 with X.Org X Server 220.127.116.11, VirtualBox PUEL 1.5.6, an nvidia 8800GT driver version 169.07. This is a dual monitor (twinview) setup for a total combined resolution of 2560x1024.
The seamless mode does not want to accept that and reverts to 1280x1024, situated in between both monitors. This leaves the outer halves of the two monitors unusable by any windows spawned within the VM.
