[arch-general] Virtualbox Window Transparent??

	Here is one for the experts. I installed virtual box on my Arch laptop, and 
upon starting my XP guest machine, I discover that the VB window is almost 
completely transparent?? This is really strange and I can't explain what is 
happening, so a picture (screenshot) is worth a 1000 words:



	As you can see, the Virtualbox window background is almost 100% transparent 
as well as some parts of the applications running in it. This can make it 
quite challenging to get things done. I am using the radeonhd driver. I tried 
it with compiz running and then again with kwin. It made no difference.

	Other than virtualbox being transparent, everything else was OK. Any ideas on 
this one??
