Same here (latest MacOS host, latest Win10 guest, latest VirtualBox and additions).
Started when turned on 3D & 2D acceleration.
You can fix this turning fullscreen off & on. However white fullscreen window keeps hanging on another MacOS space.

No. It's not the same thing. Please take a look at the Known Issues in the "Discuss the 6.0.0 release". You must be seeing the effects of #18205 VM does not refresh, but preview window runs realtime. If you shutdown the VM and change the Graphics Controller to VBoxVGA (VM Settings > Display > Screen), you'll see the issue gone.
