Description Knud Christiansen 2019-05-26 11:43:34 UTC
Description of problem:

Changing resolution in the guest (KDE spin F31 kernel 5.1.0-1 f31.x86_64 or f31 kernel 5.2.0-0.rc0.git.1)

You a short flickering and the resolution stays the same, mouse position (actual compared to visible) is corrupted.
Can partly be restored by shifting to fullscreen console in the guest by HOST+F2 =>HOST+F1

I have tried Guest desktops both Gnome, Cinnamon, either do the same or give an error.

It are complete fresh guest F31 installs

HOST is F30 ...but I dont believe it matters because problem was also with older F28 HOST

Using VboxSVGA, have tried the 2 other vbox display adapters VMSVGAm VboxVGA, does not affect the problem.



Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
VirtualBox-guest-additions 6.0.8   (Host is also Vbox 6.0.8)

How reproducible:
Always

Just make fresh F31 install as a guest

I am making a new bug as I can not reopen

VirtualBox developer here.  I have seen something similar in upstream VirtualBox and tracked what I saw down in the code.  Please open a bug ticket in the VirtualBox bugtracker[1], add the link to this ticket and I can provide you with a test build which may fix it.  (As soon as I get round to committing the fix to the code.)
