--- Comment #2 from Guido Falsi <madpilot_at_FreeBSD.org> ---
I'm using xfce in virtualbox but I use lightdm as a display manager with no
issues.

I understand my opinion on this is not popular, but slim is actually
unmaintained software and AFAIK does not implement all the latest freedesktop
standards. I have friends who have various issues when using slim also without
adding virtualbox to the mix.

Could you try another display manager?

Also, which virtualbox graphics contorller are you using in the VM? The
virtualbox UI suggest using VMSVGA, but when the guest has additions installed
I get much better results with VBoxSVGA. Just ignore the UI warning.
