  • On rare occasions, Linux guests would suddenly fail to Autofit or enter Unity
  • Unity mode would exit if the title bar of an application contained certain non UTF-8 encoded extended ASCII characters
  • On Windows hosts, the VMware Player user interface sometimes became unresponsive when minimized from full-screen mode if the suggestion balloon was being displayed
  • On Windows hosts, the user interface sometimes became unresponsive if the application was rendered on an extended display that was abruptly disconnected
