OSX: Compiz causes Seamless mode to behave incorrectly.

Reported by: calum Owned by:
Priority: major Component: GUI/seamless
Version: VirtualBox 2.2.0 Keywords:
Cc: Guest type: Solaris
Host type: Mac OS X

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

When running compiz in an OpenSolaris guest, Seamless mode no longer works correctly-- the VirtualBox window decorations disappear, but the Solaris desktop wallpaper is still visible.

If I switch from compiz to metacity in the guest, Seamless mode works fine.

I don't think the two modes are compatible to begin with given the nature of both. We should prevent seamless mode from being activated if compiz is running inside the guest.

I don't think this is specific to OSX. I see people in the forums have complained of the exact same behavior when running in a Windows (various versions) host.
