1.6.2 Resolution Startup Issue

Description

I just upgraded from 1.5.4 to 1.6.2. I waited until the full screen resolution bug was worked out. I do have a resolution issue though. When starting the vm that was shutdown in full screen mode the window is full screen but the desktop itself is not.

Basically the entire monitor turns black but the inner guest instead of running at full 1280x1024 resolution is now running at 1024x768. If I do a host key + F twice it will fix the resolution but my icons get messed up every time...

I have also noticed a slowdown in my every day quickbooks application.

Thanks for the hard work!

Did you upgrade to the latest Guest Additions?

did you use Dynamic or Fixed virtual hard disks?

Thanks for the hard work!

I can confirm this. XP SP2 and XP SP3 guests under an i386 Ubuntu 8.04 host. I even did a clean XP install with the latest guest additions.

My native screen resolution is 1600x1200.

On startup Windows guest sizes to 1400x1050 while the Virtualbox window is maximised. Moving the window edge causes the guest to auto-resize out to the full window size of 1592x1070, as does host+f twice as reported. Almost any change that would cause a resolution change causes the window to expand properly. Can provide screenshots if required (bland and boring though they might be).

For me this also happened with 1.6.0 but it never occurred to me to report it.

I did upgrade to latest guest additions, twice.

I fixed the slowdown for the most part by tweaking the memory. I have narrowed the slowdown to my shared folder. I am sharing my linux Documents as drive x and remapped my documents in xp to use x. I've had 0 issues until upgrade and now to open up a small excel file is painfully slow. I'll probably open another ticket when I get bored... ;)

I have the same issue as well... on startup the window is Full screen at 1024x768 however the Guest is locked at 800x600

a Ctl-F twice resolves the issue back to full screen.

It's as if on bootup the max res reported to the Guest is MaxRes-1. I've tried the 1.6.4 client drivers as well as the 1.5.6 ones as was suggested on the forums.
