The size of a file of a hard disk constantly grows

At dynamically extending disk its size increases each 5 seconds by two mbytes. Thus the guest operating system (linux ubuntu 11.04) stays idle.

As long as the file does not get bigger than the pre-configured size for that image this is not a bug. Even if the guest seems to be idle there is probably a background job writing to the disk. You can verify this by looking at the 'bytes written' rows in the session information dialog.
