[Pkg-virtualbox-devel] Bug#542479: virtualbox-ose-qt: Puts window on current desktop when guest resolution changes

Package: virtualbox-ose-qt
Version: 3.0.4-dfsg-1
Severity: normal


I'm using fvwm as window manager, with several virtual desktops configured as
"DeskTopSize 3x3". When the guest system changes resolution (as happens
sometimes during installation or startup, so especially in situations when you
don't always want to watch the VM), the window is brought to the current
desktop (and sometimes grabs the focus if it lands under the mouse cursor).
This doesn't happen with the GTK frontend.

Best regards,
Christian Ohm
