Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

I'm running virtualbox on Windows 7 Professional (64 bits) which supports Aero snap. When I drag the virtualbox guest from my right monitor to the top of the left monitor (to full screen it on the left monitor) it pops up on the right monitor at the resolution of the left monitor. My right monitor is 1920x1200, my left monitor is 1680x1050. So dragging it from the right to the top of the left gives me a 1680x1050 window on the right monitor.

If you can't reproduce this, please make sure you drag all the way to the top. Sometimes when not dragging it up as high as possible but stopping when it gives the fullscreen outline aero snap effect it does seem to work properly. Must be an offset of a few pixels somewhere..

The guest operating system is Windows XP Professional SP3. (32 bits)

Here's a link to an image illustrating the problem, it's not exactly pixel perfect due it being quite hard to capture the screenshot with the guest operating system 'stealing' the print screen key.. so I had to stitch several screenshots together.
