Unless someone who's managed to counter such problems comes along, I recommend installing and booting into a different desktop environment.
Give MATE a try. Lightweight and works well with virtualbox, in my experience.
I was under the impression that Cinnamon was lighter weight than Unity. Ubuntu w/ Unity runs flawlessly in virtual box.
Also, I found this in the Linux Mint 14 release notes:

Mouse Integration in Virtualbox
In Virtualbox, if your mouse cursor jumps unexpectedly click on "Machine->Disable Mouse Integration".
However, if I disable mouse integration, the mouse disappears entirely. Is there a way to make the mouse show up again after I disable Mouse integration, or am I expected to just use the keyboard from there on out?
