Seamless: does not work with Xinerama => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: Babar Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: GUI/multiview
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0 Keywords: seamless xinerama
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: other

Description

Host: Ubuntu Fiery Guest: Windows XP

When using  xinerama (so 2 displays shown as only one big), the seamless mode doesn't work.

The screenshot attached shows the behaviour when VirtualBox is started on the right screen. The left and right screens can be viewed using the top and bottom bars.

The small portion of Outlook and the clocks are part of the Windows XP running as guest. The back edges on the Outlook are XP's desktop's background.

As pointed out by Michael, the top part (top-right corner) of vbox hides Ubuntu's menu-bar (should be a clock there).

Still doesn't work on ubuntu lucid, with virtual box 3.1.8. I have a six monitor setup, and getting seamless to work across them would be huge. It currently works with the primary display only. It's been two years since this was posted - it would be great to get an update on the status if this defect.
