Ticket #15837 (closed defect: fixed)
Guest application window resizing behaves inconsistently while in seamless mode -> believed fixed in releases higher than 5.1.10

Since VirtualBox 5.1.2 and including 5.1.4 (possibly also 5.1.0 -- did not test), attempting to resize a guest application window (browser or other app) results in unexpected resizing behavior when in seamless mode. Specifically, attempts to expand the application window (make wider or longer) will quickly lose pointer focus while dragging the window border frame unless the drag is performed very slowly. Conversely, attempts to shrink the same app window (make narrower or shorter) behave as expected, with the pointer maintaining focus during the entire drag operation. This behavior occurs only in seamless mode; resize operations in all other display modes behave as expected.
This issue appears to be independent of the installed guest additions version. The problem is reproducible using using VirtualBox 5.1.2 and 5.1.4 with GA 5.0.16, 5.1.2, 5.1.4. Problem occurs with 64-bit Linux and Windows (7 & 10) guests. Host platforms include fully updated 64-bit CentOS 6 hosts on Intel (Core i5/i7 Sandy Bridge thru Haswell), all using Intel on-chip GPUs and X.Org X11 Intel video driver (2.99.917-0.4.20151111). X.Org server 1.17.4-9.5.
