Display with Windows 10 guest and OSX host is corrupted

Description

I have installed Windows 10 on my retina MacBook Pro and on my (non retina) iMac. Unfortunately with the latest release of VirtualBox the display on a Windows host is corrupted.

Specifically, when I start typing or I perform any mouse-related gui-event activity (i.e. press a button, select some text), then the square area that takes part of this activity is grayed out. Note that only the "refresh" part of the screen is damaged, not the whole screen.

If for example VB loose focus and gains it again (i.e. when the display is forced to redisplay/redraw) then the visual returns to normal.

As an example I attach a screenshot. I have clicked on the language button of the Windows login screen at the bottom, where a pop-up appears to select languages as well as on the text field to write the username. For these actions, all partially redrawn screen sections are completely grayed out, making the interface totally unusable.

Looks like a duplicate of #15707.

Indeed it seems the same problem. Probably this ticket should be closed?
