in seamless mode with Linux KDE host, sliding open a KDE auto-hidden panel causes temporary screen corruption

Reported by: davidsarah2 Owned by:
Priority: minor Component: GUI/seamless
Version: VirtualBox 4.0.12 Keywords: seamless kde
Cc: davidsarah2 Guest type: Windows
Host type: Linux

Description

Host: Ubuntu 10.10 with KDE desktop

Guest: Windows XP Pro SP3

VirtualBox 3.2.8_OSE r64453

Steps to reproduce:

Set the KDE task panel to auto-hide (in Panel Options | Panel Settings | More settings). Open the KDE System Settings app and select Desktop Effects under Workspace Appearance and Behavior. In the All Effects tab, make sure that 'Sliding popups' is checked.

Start a Windows guest in seamless mode. Move the mouse to open the KDE task panel. As it is sliding open, the display will show stale contents from closed and dragged windows on the guest desktop (see attached screenshot).

Workaround: uncheck the KDE 'Sliding popups' option mentioned above.

This also seems to happen while resizing a host window. Again, this is possibly dependent on which desktop effects are enabled; I have it in the mode that scales the window contents while they are being resized.
