Ticket #6089 (new defect)
Inactive/non-functioning keyboard and mouse in fullscreen (Ubuntu 9.10 guest)

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.1.2||Keywords:||fullscreen, full screen, regression|
I have previously been running this VM successfully in fullscreen on this computer using VB 3.0.10, but I have since reinstalled Windows. Though this should not matter since the OS remains the same (Windows 7 Pro x64).
Fullscreen renders the screen area "unclickable"/static and all animated content is frozen until I return from fullscreen, at which time the VM resumes operation.
I have reinstalled VirtualBox Guest Additions after upgrading the kernel. I have also tried reverting to an earlier kernel, but I still cannot go to fullscreen mode.
I can go into functioning fullscreen mode when not installing the Guest Additions, but I have a 16:9 screen (1280x800) and the picture when going fullscreen has an aspect ratio of 4:3.
Attached is the VBox.log from a session in which I boot Ubuntu 9.10, tries going fullscreen, reverts to windowed mode, and shuts it down.
