MacOS 10.6.8 host, Fedora14-x86-64 guest, Gnome WM, window moves=artifacts

Using VirtualBox 4.1.4 r74291, but also previous versions for as long as I can remember, dragging windows causes horrible artifacts inside the dragged window. Dragging another window over the affected window will fix the parts that the other window covers and reveals, but the other window develops its own artifacts as a consequence of moving it. Hiding and unhiding a window clears the artifacts. This happens on every window, all the time. Firefox windows will refresh themselves after the mouse is released. I'm using the Fedora default desktop, GDM. The 4.1.4 guest additions have been installed. Windowed mode still has artifacts. Seamless mode is better, but artifacts still occur. Scaled mode has artifacts. Switching between modes clears currently visible artifacts, but this is because the screen size changes, and the window manager redraws all windows.
