Guest OS's don't appear after boot until VM is clicked off ...

Strange bug this, but it seems any guest OS (tested with Win XP and Xubuntu) won't actually appear visually after it obots into the VM until (I think) you click onto another application (like the Finder), hence putting the VM into the background. It possibly works the other way round, if the guest is booting in the background, you might have to click on the guest window (if Full screen or 'normal', presumbably not seamless mode) for the OS to appear visually (sound will be heard though - Windows XP chimes etc)
This is just a bug/clitch, if you don't click though you'll just have a black screen until you do.
