2D acc makes seamless mode displaying desktop

Reported by: ZeB Owned by:
Priority: major Component: GUI/seamless

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

The bug occurs since version 3.2.2 :

Enabling 2D acceleration makes seamless mode showing the desktop in any circumstances. Disabling it fixes the problem. I currently run a XP SP3 guest, but the problem seems present under Windows Seven guests, and maybe other non-tested guests.

Please read  this post for more info.

I have the same issue: Seamless mode produced the same result as full screen mode.

All was well prior to upgrade to 3.2.4 (running 3.2.2 prior). Upgraded to 3.2.6 hoping to fix the problem, which it did not. Found the post suggesting disabling 2D Acceleration which does the trick. This is still a kludge in my book, but workable for now.

Same issue, same workaround working on OSX 10.6.4 host and Win7/64 guest.

Still the same in 3.2.10 (at least on OSX 10.6.4 host and Win7/64 guest).
