VBox > 4.3.14 has flicker / slow redrawing of UI elements (regression)

Host: Fedora 20 x86_64 Host video card: NVIDIA 9500 (driver 340.58) Guest: Windows 7 x86_64
Any VirtualBox newer than 4.3.14 causes UI elements to flicker or slow / not redraw when the mouse hovers over them when 3D support is enabled and the 3D driver is installed.
VBox guest additions version does not matter. I can have 4.3.20 guest additions installed on 4.3.14 and no flickering occurs, but upgrading the host binaries to 4.3.16, 4.3.18, or 4.3.20 will induce UI flickering. It causes 3D / Aero to be unusable.
