Guest additions don't work with recent xorg and kde -> mouse support fixed in SVN

Description

I'm using VirtualBox 2.1.2 on Windows XP SP3. I have the same problem with several linux guests : guest additions don't work (no screen dynamic resizing, no mouse support) with the latest version of Xorg and KDE (for example on Mandriva Cooker, Debian Sib with KDE 4.1 or 4.2 from Experimental, or Kubuntu Jaunty), while it works with Mandriva 2009.0 for example.

I don't know whether it comes from Xorg or KDE.

NB : same thing with VBox 2.1.0

  • Summary changed from Guest additions don't work with recent xorg and kde to Guest additions don't work with recent xorg and kde -> mouse support fixed in SVN

The mouse support is now working in the SVN version. The problem was that we were not correctly detecting X.Org release candidates (in this case 1.6 rc 2), which use different version numbering. I tried this out using a Kubuntu Jaunty daily live install, and dynamic resizing worked even before I fixed the mouse issue. On which guests does this not work?
