Package: virtualbox
Version: 4.2.16-dfsg-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I had a perfectly working VirtualBox setup running a Windows 7 client. At some point over the last month or so, after an upgrade I have significant screen corruption making it hard to use the client (for instance, when writing an email in Outlook, one cannot read the currently typed line until forcing redraw by going up and down).

I'm not sure if this is fully a VirtualBox issue, but I'm not seeing any such corruption in the native Gnome environment.

Thank you for your work on this package,
