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?
