After installing Ubuntu 11.04 there are two shells installed (if you ignore rescue shells). Default shell is named Ubuntu, this is Unity shell (sometimes referred as Unity 3D). Second is Ubuntu Classic which is actually Ubuntu with Gnome 2.x shell. If you would like to have a Unity 2D shell, you have to installed it separately!, it is not included in default install, nor on install CD. So I am little bit confused, that you have written, that you did not need to install it. (I have attached print-screen of Ubuntu login window)

I also didn't have a xorg.conf file after default install, but I have created it manually, because this is my very old virtualbox note: if video-card problem appears then create xorg.conf file etc. But now I have tested several options. With or without this file my video is not working correctly. By the way, Unity 2D worked fine in Ubuntu 10.10 using VirtualBox 4.0.6.

My graphic card on host is "Intel Mobile 945gm".
