Mouse behaves badly with two screens Guest Additions 6.1.8

Reported by: linux_user_1 Owned by:

Description

My configuration is Host: Debian Stretch Guests: Debian Buster (two screens), Debian Buster (one screen), Ubuntu Focal Fossa Server Desktop: Gnome classic on host and guests (including Ubuntu server)

When I upgraded from 6.1.6 to 6.1.8 (including an upgrade of the guest additions) the mouse did not behave correctly on the guests with two screens and the secondary screen stays black even though the window for the second screen opens. When I move the mouse over a widget and click, it sometimes does nothing and sometimes activates a different window. Downgrading to VBox 6.0 and installing the 6.0 guest additions fixed the problem.

I recall having a similar or perhaps exactly the same problem with my two screen guests in an earlier upgrade of VBox (I don't remember the versions involved). I think there was a bug report in that previous case as well.
