[WorksForMe] Mouse pointer is offset to top left after last update

I have an iMac with Linux Mint 18 as a guest. Around the last update, my mouse pointer appears to be offset about 1/4" to the top left of where the pointer actually is.
I read through several posts with this issue, and modified many settings including the Mouse Integration, the mouse device itself, and even an update to grub. But none of these changed the situation.
Anyone else having this issue?
Any logs I can view?

Virtual Box version: 6.0.10 r132072 (Qt5.6.3)

Thanks!

Last update of what? OSX? VirtualBox? Mint?

Not really...

We need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Actually, one thing I forgot to do last update (of VirtualBox) was install the Guest Additions. Upon doing this a few minutes ago, the problem disappeared.

Sorry for the trouble.

Glad you got it going. Marking as [WorksForMe].
