After upgrading from 3.2.2 to 3.2.4 saved machine states can not be successfully restored. They come up with a blank (white) window in the top left corner of the screen with the titlebar off the screen. This is a Windows 7 64bit host with Gentoo Linux guest, but other combinations have shown the same symptoms (see the forum thread). When you resize the machine window Windows 7 automatically recenters such that you now see the titlebar, however, the window is still completely blank and does also not show the menu bar. Forcing a machine power off (using the close button in the top right window corner) and restarting the powered off machine works as expected, no problems there.
This is 100% reproducible, in 3.2.4 restoring saved states doesn't work, powering off and powering on again works just fine.
Reverting to 3.2.2 solves the problem for me. With 3.2.2 saved states can be restored just fine.
This might help as well: after reverting back to 3.2.2, when I first restarted the (forcefully) powered off machine I got the same symptoms(!). The system did appear to be starting fine though (disk activity etc.), although nothing was shown in the machine window. When the boot up sequence reached the X Windows start, the machine window was repainted and now the menu bar and everything appeared. From then on, everything has been working fine again, including several save/restore and power off/power on cycles. Not sure how to make sense of this. In 3.2.2 it only occurred for the machine that was forcefully powered off using 3.2.4, while in 3.2.4 it only occurred for save/restore cycles, not for forced power off/power on cycles. Weird, isn't it?
