[CentOS-devel] VirtualBox + CentOS 5.3/5.4 (xrandr issue?)

I recently tested CentOS 5.3/5.4 with VirtualBox, and had some issues  
getting the video to pronounce itself properly. After logging on it  
was able to function in full screen mode capably (when I had used a  
customized xconf.org file that someone had published as "working", as  
well as having installed the VirtualBox "guest additions"), but the  
login screen did not configure into a proper manner.

I read a few postings about this issue being related to the xrandr  
library version that is used within CentOS, but since I do not have  
RedHat 5.3 or 5.4, presume this might be a CentOS only issue for some  

Can anyone enlighten me regarding this issue and any recommended  
methods for working around it?

Thanks in advance, and do have a most wonderful and blessed day.
