Description

When I starting WinXP as guest on my Gentoo Linux 2007.0 x86_64 it's using 1.5-2% CPU and 35% RAM. After activating "Seamless windows" it's growing to 50% CPU and 35% RAM. Then if I disable this option VB still uses 50% CPU. Is it a feature or a bug? Some infomartion about my system:

This is reproducable? Seamless windows should have no impact on performance if you don't use the guest.
