Wrong guest screen resolution with host using 1366x768

Hello. I'm using VirtualBox 6.1.6 on a Windows 10 host, running an ArchLinux guest with the guest additions installed from the ISO, also in version 6.1.6.

When I maximize the screen, or use full screen, the guest resolution is wrong. It seems that VirtualBox is trying to round to the closest multiple of 8, so a few extra pixels are inserted. In maximized mode, scroll bars (horizontal and vertical) are shown. In full screen, a few pixels get off-screen.

It's a minor issue, and I could solve it by using the 1360x768 resolution on my laptop. It's not the recommended resolution, but solves the VirtualBox issue.

the current version of Viretualbox is not 6.1.6 but 6.1.14. I suggest you upgrade, retest and report back.
