Seamless mode has taskbars but no windows with fedora 10 as a guest

Description (last modified by Frank Mehnert)

When trying seamless mode with fedora 10 as a guest i only get the task bars to appear. The windows of the programs running under the guest don't show.

I also needed to install system-config-display and use it to set vboxvideo as the display driver for it to even allow me to use seamless mode and other display related features. (Normally you will just edit xorg.conf but because of changes in the way X11 works, there is no xorg.conf by default but you can just use this tool to generate one and also edit some settings in it)

I forgot to mention that sometimes its unstable and leaves it in a mode where the task bar menus are invisible and HOST+L doesn't work to exit seamless mode and once you shutdown the VM and restart it, It will try to enter seamless mode again. Possibly causing the bug again. I had to remove the VM configuration and reconfiguring it (Using the same VDI) for it to stop.

Does this still occur with VirtualBox 3.0.6?
