    initial v1  
    1 I have the same issues since updating VB from version 5.0.22-1 to 5.1.6-1 even with Linux guestVMs where no xorg is installed, so the guest-additions sholdn't be relevant for this issue. My workaround is to restart i3 (checkout your i3-config, there has to be a shortcut definition like this: „bindsym $mod+Shift+Q restart“). This forces i3 to redraw all windows. Unfortunately the restart has to be initiated every time the guest-VM changes the resolution (for example at and after the boot-process or after moving the guest-Window to a workspace with different resolution).   
     1I have the same issues since updating VB from version 5.0.22-1 to 5.1.6-1. In my case the resize-functionality actually works, but the guestVM is displayed the way it is shown on your picture. This happens even with Linux guestVMs where no xorg is installed, so the guest-additions shouldn't be relevant for this issue. In my opinion the source of the issue is more like an missing “redraw-window” call or something like that in the newer VB versions.
