Can't resize guest wider than resolution of 1680. Dual screen host.

Description

Ubuntu 11.04 64 bit host. VirtualBox 4.0.8 installed from the VB repo.

Previous install was 9.10 with VB 4.0.7. Run XP and solaris clients OK and resize across 2x 1680x1050 displays to get one massive virtual machine. Very useful for what I do for business. Essential in fact.

Now in 11.04 with 4.0.8, If I try and resize the guest window, it lets me drag it out as large as possible, but when I release the mouse the guest window resizes to 1680 wide. I can't set it larger. I can move the window around no problem. Other apps will resize larger than 1680 wide.

This works here (Debian Sid host). I can resize the Window to make it cover both screens. Perhaps a problem of your Window manager?
