Focused VM Window Blanks Screen, Unfocused Window Has Pink Non-cliend Area

If vbox is actually going to start the VM and data is transferred, then the non-client area of the VM window turn pink and if and when this window has focus, the whole screen blanks. If I take the focus away, i.e. by hitting F12 which would drop yakuake and give that the focus, the screen comes back with the booting VM in a pink window.
Since the only way to stop vbox now is to kill it from outside (cannot get to the UI of the VM window), whatever it has done to the video settings remains and affects new windows!! Another program started will do the same thing. X must be restarted to reset.
So ... what is vbox doing the the video settings?
Happens with and without HW acceleration checked. Still happens with the 2.2 beta. Happened with win98 and reactos runs. I did not try others.
