seamless mode problems when moving/minimizing guest's windows
|Reported by:||Chuck14||Owned by:|
Host: Ubuntu 11.04 Guest: Windows XP SP3
Host system is dual-head (two 1680x1050 LCD panels), Compiz disabled (by selecting "None" for Visual Effects in the Appearance Preferences panel).
VBox is configured for 2 virtual monitors. Windows reports 2 monitors as it should, and is configured to extend desktop onto the second monitor.
I normally run this VM in seamless mode. Works well most of the time. Sometimes when I move or minimize a guest window, there is a rectangular area left behind (same size as the moved/minimized guest window) showing the guest's desktop background. This area will cover up host windows if the guest window was on top of them.
This does not happen all the time. Seems to happen more often on second monitor, but does happen on first monitor sometimes.
In order to recover, I usually have to switch out of seamless mode and back in. Sometimes moving around other guest windows or clicking in another guest window will fix it.
