Ticket #5275 (new defect)
problems with full screen mode after upgrading to VB versions 3.0.4 and up

I have used VB for some time and something very strange has happened with versions 3.0.4 to 3.0.8 regarding the use of full screen mode.
I have a notebook with screen resolution 1280x800, opensuse 11.0. My guest OS is a RH v4, which I have set to maximum screen size of 1280x800, same the the notebook.
If I run VB 3.0.2, I can resize (or use full screen mode) the guest resolution up to the notebook's resolution without any problems. With VB versions 3.0.4 amd up, the full screen mode results in a resolution with a scrollable view of only part of a desktop of some larger size. First I thought it could be due to new versions of VB additions but even after I have installed the VB additions without any errors the problem persisted.
