RDP Desktop size not always reported back

Description (last modified by sunlover) (diff)
I have XP running in VirtualBox on a console size 800x600.
When I connect to it with mstsc or xfreerdp and request size 1020x700 by sending
Client MCS Connect Initial PDU with GCC Conference Create Request header_type: CS_CORE Desktop: 1020 x 700, colorDepth: RNS_UD_COLOR_8BPP
then VirtualBox replies with
capability 2, capabilitySetType: CAPSTYPE_BITMAP 0x2 desktopWidth: 1020 desktopHeight: 700
BUT the desktop remains at 800x600 and is shown in rdp surrounded by a black border.
When connecting the same way with rdesktop VirtualBox replies with
desktopWidth: 800 desktopHeight: 600
and rdesktop thus get a chance to resize properly.
The mismatch and black border has the unfortunate side effect in FreeRDP that some redraw operations fails, for example the zoom effect when windows are mini/maximized in XP.
Is this a bug or a feature in VirtualBox?
