Windows 10 Start button causes taskbar to disappear in Seamless Mode

I have just installed VBox 5.1.4 Windows 10 64 bit Host, Windows 10 64 bit guest.

Prior to the latest update seamless mode did not work at all with Windows 10 guests as reported by others.

After installing 5.1.4 seamless mode appears to work in that entering seamless mode the taskbar appears as expected and the bottom of the screen, and open windows, or windows opened from the taskbar appear to behave properly.

However left clicking on the start button to open the start menu causes the taskbar to disappear, although the user interface bar remains visible. The start menu appears in the preview window of the Virtual Box manager, but not on the desktop. Closing the start menu (insert Ctrl-Alt-Del and start task manager) causes the taskbar to reappear.

The same behaviour occurs in a 32bit Windows 10 guest. Host Display is 1920x1200
