Black Screen / Graphics Glitches on VirtualBox 2.2.4 and Fedora 11

Description

I am having the same (or similar) problems to  http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2245 - namely that the VirtualBox window originally has no display at all, but still resizes (from BIOS to OS, and then from OS to full-screen). When I click on the "close" button, I can see the full screen in grayscale.

When booted into the OS (in this case Windows XP SP3), graphics are heavily distorted and unreadable. Guest Additions are installed and are the latest version. However, starting the VM from the command line with VBoxSDL --startvm "Windows XP Pro" starts and runs with no problems.
