OSX host: Dock icon problem when running java on Win2K guest

Reported by: xylifyx Owned by:
Priority: major Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.2 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Mac OS X

Description

When I run java programs, which uses a lot of memory, The Virtual Box gets a spinning ball and I can follow window updates on the dock icon but not in the window anymore. This goes on for a couple of minutes and the Dock process has a high CPU load.

When I sample the Virtual Box process and the Dock process it spends most of the time updating the Dock icon and the dock spends a lot of time downsampling images.

Would it be possible to disable the Dock icon updates as it would make Virtual Box more usable?
