VRDP freezes during startup of Windows 2008 guest -> Fixed in SVN

When starting a W2008 guest, the VRDP screen somehow freezes. It is not possible to see keystrokes or mouse moves. Nevertheless the keystrokes reach the guest. I you are minimizing and maximising the VRDP screen, you see the result of what you entered. Using the "native" screen from the VirtualBox GUI in parallel, you can see your keystrokes and mouse movements. Using headless mode you can only type or click - minimize - maximize until you manage to shut down the guest. This problem occurs as far as I can see only during startup as long as the Windows welcome screen is active. Once you made it to the desktop, the problem does not occur. I am using a Windows XP 32 bit for controlling the guest. Virtual Box runs on CentOS 5.5 64 bit.
