Guest additions screen resize detection code fails

Although I have now upgraded to 6.1.12 for Virtualbox itself and the extensions, I am maintaining the VMs at guest additions 6.1.6 because 6.1.8 introduced an error where the screen resize instruction fails (on Linux machines) when using the 3D facility, e.g. Cinnamon. Making it impossible to run them headless and the issue has been carried over into 6.1.10 & 6.1.12 too. A Debian/Cinnamon VM actually reports the failure to the user.
