Drag/Drop files stop working when restarting VM from saved state -> fixed in 5.2.20

Description

I am running virtual Box 5.2.8 r121009 with a windows 10 VM running on a host Ubuntu 16.

The problem is that when I start my windows VM the drag/drop files works seamlessly in the beginning. I can drag drop files from my windows VM desktop to the Linux without a problem.

But then I choose to shut down my VM and in the "Close Virtual Machine" dialog i choose "Save the machine state". When I power on the machine again and restore it's state, the drag/drop files option stop working.

The only way to get the option back is to shut down my VM machine completely instead of saving it's state. But then that means i have to restart windows 10 and wait for the whole boot procedure.

Can you please fix this issue as it's a real pain to do it like this...

I am using VirtualBox 5.2.18 r124319 on a Windows 10 x64 machine and I observed the same behavior on my Windows 7 x86 virtual machine. The dragged object (file) is not even allowed to drop (i think it is the not-allowed mouse pointer).

It only happens when the machine was paused and restored (after a restart everything works fine) and lead after trying to drag and drop to the following problems.
