Description Eric Tanguy 2009-11-24 00:35:06 EST
Description of problem:
When i launch Fedora 12 in a windowed virtualbox VM sometimes X server starts fine some time it does not depending the dimension of the window. I think X server is only able to detect the window dimension when this dimension is common (ie 800x600).
See attached xorg.conf and xorg log filer

I'm not sure if this is an X.Org bug or vboxvideo bug. If it's X.Org bug, then it should not happen on other versions; if it's vboxvideo bug then we probably can't do much here.

In the same version of virtualbox fedora 11 have no problem with vboxvideo whereas fedora 12 does not detect the window dimension so i think this is a X.Org bug ...
