Settings:
Host: WinXP SP2
Guest: WinXP SP2 (with Guest addtions installed)

Issue:
Screen resolution changing (issued by Guest OS) doesn't work , when VirtualBox window is minimized.

Steps to re-create:

  1. Start guest O/S with big resolution (say 976x625).
  1. Right click desktop -> properties -> settings.
  1. Set resolution to 800x600 -> OK.
  1. Minimize VirtualBox window during the count down.
  1. Wait for half minute. It is supposed that resolution will get back 976x625 after the count down is done, but the real situation is not.

Things to note:
It only happens when VirtualBox window is minimized.

Any idea ?
Thanks very much for help !
