Ticket #2238 (closed defect: fixed)
Seamless works fine for a while, then drawing errors occur and it is impossible to disable seamless

I am using Mac OS X 10.5 and Ubuntu Linux 8.04 with all updates and guest additions, and this bug has occurred from Virtualbox 1.6.6-2.0.2. I also have a fully-updated XP SP3 guest with additions that I was not running when I encountered this bug.
Seamless works as it is supposed to initially, but after a while (usually after switching between seamless / no seamless a few times) Virtualbox greys out the option to turn seamless off, and the regions where Ubuntu windows / panels / menus had been do not update when windows move, etc. Thus, one can drag a window out of its original area and have part or none of the window visible. The Applications, Places, System menus consequently no longer display, making even properly shutting down the system at this point difficult unless one has configured Ubuntu to shutdown on APCI shutdown. After rebooting the VM, the VM restarts into a functioning seamless mode (although the problem can reoccur if one doesn't exit seamless mode at this point.) The visual anomalies looks like Ticket #1681.
This bug doesn't occur in my Windows XP VM.
I will try to attach pictures of the situation and logfiles.
