Suggestion: Disable/enable guest display auto-resize

Description

I see that this menu item (under Machine menu of guest window) has a checked state and it also has disable/enable textual phrases for checked/unchecked states.

But that confuses me many times. By convention, it should use the same phrase (enable) if you have checked state - that will let users see "Oh, auto-resize is enabled because it is checked".

Or you should remove the checked/unchecked feature if you use different phrases for current state of auto-resize.

In my view that is not (only) a suggestion but a classical (minor :-)) bug - the behavior of the application is different than users expect it to be.
