[CentOS] vmware fusion display auto-size problem

I am running vmware fusion 4.1.1 on a OSX host.  Centos6.2 is a guest. 
The box is a macbook laptop running leopard.

Before upgrading to 6.2, the display auto-resize (or auto-fill) was 
working fine.  After 6.2, it has stopped working.

Centos is fully updated to 6.2.  I have tried to install the vmware 
drivers from the repository (via yum), and yum reports I have the 
latest.  Vmware reports I have the latest version of app and linux tools.

I have uninstalled and re-installed vmware tools to no avail.  During 
the vmware tools install it returns a statement that it does not have 
drivers for x.

Anybody else come across this?  Google and vmware sites either do not 
have any info, or I am asking the wrong question.

This being my first foray into vmware, is it advisable not to run 
updates until needed?  What is best practice in this config?

Thanks in advance for your help.
