Hi all,

I've applied the latest patch (3rd rebuild) and it finally works with my Intel HD Graphics 3000.

Praise Bob!

I rebooted the guest and tried again after uninstalling/reinstalling the guest additions but that didn't help.

Aside from reverting to 3.2.29, found only these 2 workarounds:
-remove the guest additions, X starts working again (issue re-occurs if I reinstall the additions)
-upgrade to 3.8.13, this apparently resolves everything with no issues so far, guest + X + additions working smoothly.



I upgraded to the 3rd kernel build and the problem remains.
Problem seems to be fixed with the latest Virtualbox 4.2.14 (released today).

Yes it is. After upgrading to Virtualbox 4.2.14 everything is working with the 3rd 3.2.45 kernel build. Thank you all.
