Increase default video RAM

I find 8MB results in X-Windows sometimes not starting, at least for Mandriva 2009 guests.

Increasing the video RAM fixes this. Since the amount of RAM in most host machines is much more than it used to be, is it perhaps time to increase the default to, say, 32MB?

BTW, Windows XP SP2 specification requires a minimum of 16 MB of VRAM. AFAIK It is necessary to pass WHQL tests.

BTW, it will be increased for VBox 3.1 final to 16 MB VRAM per VM.

VBox developers: I recommend closing this wish as Fixed.
