Windows XP guest with guest additons do not restore screen when the window is in maximum size

Description

You know, make some changes in the windows XP guest, than minimize the guest machine window. Work a bit with your host system and then try to restore the windows XP guest window in maximum size(as it was before minimization). The result is a black screen(of the guest, not the host). I have to midsize the guest window which leads to a picture restoration and then I could maximize it again with ,well, a picture and not a black screen.

A direkt screen restoration of the guest would be nice.

enlish challange finished! ;)

I am going to attache two logfile from the running guest.

Does this happen only with the XP guest? Do you have other virtual machines? Do they work correctly?

If I remember right I have this problems on several linux guests. Especially debian makes problems. I try it out the next days.

I´ve looked arround in my virtual Machines. In the moment fedora 14 is affected(no guest additions).
