I tried after another update yesterday. Same problem. After a little more experimenting, and I noticed that copy/paste between the Windows host and the guest no longer work either. As I understand it, both copy/paste and resize involve an interaction between the hypervisor and the guest, and the vmware tools ("guest additions") are a key part of the "plumbing" for those interactions. Given that discovery, I suspect this is likely to be a compatibility problem between the vmware Xorg driver and the vmware tools (provided by vmware). I wonder if it would be worth trying to build one of the "open vmware tools" open-source packages. Anyone have suggestions which to try?
