Ticket #8102 (closed defect: obsolete)
unable to save/restore machine state
|Reported by:||outch||Owned by:|
Description (last modified by frank) (diff)
The host computer is Windows XP SP3 with all updates. The guest is an XUbuntu with all updates.
The host is a laptop with two screens (main LCD monitor and an other LCD monitor as secondary device). The guest has a monoscreen configuration, its window is usually located on the second monitor.
When I start the guest and then save its state while I'm logged in, I'm not able to restore this saved state: the guest window does not seem to be initialized. I can see the progressbar whose value is increasing while the guest is restoring. This progress window is badly placed at the top-left corner of the screen, then nothing happen. The guest window is not listed in the task bar. When I click "display" in VirtualBox main window, an empty window is shown at the top-left corner and it's not painted. Something is wrong with the guest display on restore. But this issue does not always happen, let's say in 80% of restore attempts.
I've to say that it's an old bug, it's been here for at least 1 or 2 years. I've not upgraded to VB 4.0.0 yet, still waiting for the first update pack to see how new VB 4.0 behaves (this is my work computer).
