Ubuntu install on Vista host results in scrambled display.

Just installed latest version of Virtual box (3.1.4), mounted Ubuntu Desktop 9.10 CD and attempted to install. The first menu where you choose a language and livecd/install mode is fine, however when I go to install or launch the live cd the display is greatly zoomed in to the top left corner of the screen with scrambled/mostly pink colours.

Posted a forum thread, but was unable to reach a resolution. Posting a bug was recommended by the moderator, so here we are. The forum thread is available here:

Would you be able to try fiddling with some of the guest settings (particularly VRAM) to see if that makes a difference?

No response, closing. Before you reopen this ticket test VBox 3.2.8 first.
