Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

Hello there.

I am running host OS Mac OS X 10.7.1 on a MacBook Pro with a 2.4 GHz core i5 and 4GB memory, VirtualBox 4.1.4 r74291, and guest OS Windows XP service pack 3, 32-bit. I have recently upgraded to this version of virtualbox, and have installed virtualbox additions 4.1.4, as well as all current Mac OS X and Windows XP updates as of this date.

I have configured 1 CPU, 1GB of system memory for the guest, 64MB of video memory, and have enabled 2D video acceleration.

I have just noticed that when I enter scale mode with host+c, the guest video freezes, and no longer seems to accept keyboard or mouse input, and the guest must then be reset. This is exactly and consistently repeatable on my machine. This only occurs when 2D video acceleration is enabled. I believe this is a bug, but I am curious if I have made a configuration error, or incorrect support assumption.

same thing is happening on Windows 7 with an XP guest, except the freeze occurs when leaving scale mode.

OSX 10.6.8, hosting WinXP, no 3D acceleration

Behavior occurs most notably coming out of scaled mode.

On OSX, notice that if I bring up the Dashboard and click back and forth between the guest window, the window will update and so it's possible to navigate to a proper guest shutdown. You must exit the host process to escape the problem altogether as a simple restart of guest is not sufficient.
