Seamless mode is broken on Linux host with Openbox and composite manager

Reported by: rsk02 Owned by:

Seamless mode is completely broken with any composite manager enabled while using Openbox. I have tried using compiz as its own wm and seamless mode works fine on the same machine.

What happens is that the rest of the screen shades/seems to be overlayed by VB when entering seamless mode. I am attaching a screenshot as that explains things best. Moving a window just causes it to be smeared within its own outline. Switching desktops and coming back will clear up the screen but only till the next time one needs to interact with the window.

I am using kernel 2.6.39 on an Archlinux x64 host. The guest is Windows xp. Both 3d and 2d are disabled for the guest. I am also attaching the vbox log in case it has something useful to show.

I forgot to mention that the only choices I have for composite manager with Openbox are xcompgr and cairo-compmgr. I have tried both with identical results as far as seamless mode is concerned.
