I guess this is likely what's causing trouble. We use some rather advanced X
server operations to "capture" the plotting windows produced by R. Apparently
those do not work correctly inside the virtual box. Perhaps you could drop the
vendor of the virtual box a note about this, maybe they have a way to fix this.

You should be able to work around this issue by running the following in the
console (once per session):
x11 <- X11 <- grDevices::X11

This should give you the regular R X11 windows for graphics. You will miss out
on a number of features we usually add to those windows, though (such as menu
options to export the graphic to a file, etc.).
