CentOS 5.2 Virtual Screen resizes when trying to use the keyboard. (XP 32 bit host and Vista 64 bit host)

Description

Hello,

I have been working with a CentOS 5.2 installation within virtualbox which has been working perfect until now. When I start my CentOS I can use the keyboard until the graphical environment is loaded. I can use my mouse to select the username box to type the username, but no matter what key I press the screen gets smaller, and with the other press the screen gets the original size again, but CentOS does not receive input.

I tried reinstalling virtualbox, and moving the image to another computer running virtualbox. They both give the same problem. (XP 32 bit host and Vista 64 bit host (vbox 32 and vbox 64).

I doubt the problem has to do with my CentOS installation since it is only a simple installation of CentOS 5.2 + Sybase 15 (That worked perfect until reboot).

Should work with VBox 3.1.0. It had many RHEL/CentOS related fixes in Guest Additions.

bartdeboer86, please test and reopen this ticket if VBox 3.1.0 still does not work for you. Make sure to install the VBox 3.1.0 guest additions as well. If you consider to open this ticket, please don't forget to attach a new VBox.log file for such a VM session.
