Virtualbox 3.0: Black Screen When Starting a VM -> fixed in 3.0.2

Description

The bug I am experiencing is similar to the one described  http://www.virtualbox.de/ticket/2245 here. However, there are some significant differences and it is occurring in VMWare 3.0

My OS: Mandriva 2009.1 running kernel 2.6.29.3-desktop-1mnb My graphics card: ATI RS690 (X1200 series)

Now, originally virtual box was working fine on my system and I had no issues. However, yesterday I was having trouble playing back video files. After some googling I tracked the bug down to an issue with the X.org driver I am using (I'm using the driver "ati" (Not "fglrx", as it no longer supports my X1200 series chipset and no "radeonhd" because it's just too slow)).

I solved my video issues by disabling EXA and using XAA for X.org. However, it seems that disabling EXA has caused Virtual Box to exhibit the behaviour described in ticket 2245.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Okay, I've narrowed things down. The issue does not seem to be with EXA/XAA. Rather, if I enable hardware translucency via the Compositing X extension, VirtualBox exhibits the behaviour described in  http://www.virtualbox.org/ticket/2245. Disabling compositing causes VBox to work fine.

Please try again with version 3.0.2, as this issue may be fixed there.
