Hi. Plse see this discussion for additional details, log files and a duplication procedure: https://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=87685&start=15
In short, on a CentOS 6.2 guest I am stuck with only three display resolution settings if I use GuestAdditions >= 5.1.0. GAs version 5.0.40 work fine and offer a multitude of resolutions and although I have not tried it, I suspect that using 5.0.40 I could also use xrandr to add additional modes. Moderator socratis has reproduced the issue also in 5.2.10. I have not tried this on other hosts than my Win7 laptop. socratis is on a MAC if I remember correctly, I doubt the host matters here. For me personally the priority could be set to minor since there is a workaround, on the other hand, many users may depend on other GAs-stuff fixed in newer versions.
