64-bit Vista Home Premium additions problems/fixed in 3.0.8
|Reported by:||bqbauer||Owned by:|

I first noticed this with 2.1.4, and it still exists with 2.2.2. 64-bit Vista Ultimate is NOT affected. Everything below applies to a 64-bit Home Premium guest on a 64-bit OpenSolaris 2008.11 host unless otherwise mentioned.
With guest additions installed, the guest display won't resize or properly enter seamless or full screen mode. "Auto Resize Guest Display" is enabled. The mouse pointer shows the Vista pointer below my OpenSolaris pointer. 32-bit Vista is not affected, nor are other 32 or 64-bit guests, such as XP (32-bit), Ubuntu 8.x and 9.x, OpenSolaris, or Solaris 10u6. I've recreated the problem on multiple hosts. I've also installed a Vista 64-bit Home Premium guest from scratch with no success. 64-bit Ultimate works perfectly.
With 2.2.2 on Home Premium, I noticed that the additions are installing a secondary, inactive, graphics adapter called "(Default Monitor) on VirtualBox Graphics Adapter", but when I enable it, it just flickers endlessly until I shut down the guest.
