Screen is not updated to display BSOD in Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
After causing a BlueScreen in Windows Server 2003 R2 Standard in VirtualBox 3.1.2 with Guest Additions installed and the experimental 2D and 3D acceleration enabled, the BlueScreen itself is not displayed. Instead, the display shows the last moment before Windows BSOD'd, and the cursor remains as it was at that moment as well. The screen doesn't change from this until after the BlueScreen goes away (e.x. an automatic restart). On some Windows systems that might be configured to do a complete memory dump and/or to not automatically restart after a BlueScreen, it would be helpful to see the BlueScreen to know that Windows has crashed, rather than it simply appearing "frozen".
Expected Behavior: A BlueScreen is displayed on a Windows crash.
Actual Behavior: The screen appears frozen and the cursor can seemingly be freely moved around the screen until the virtual machine automatically restarts (if Windows is configured to do so).
