Similarly, the video stuttering and fullscreen might be due to bad drivers for the virtualised hardware (e.g. intel chips).

However I do agree that it would be useful if virtualbox e.g. reported the real screen capabilities, but I've found installing guest additions tends to take away any resolution issues I run across.
