OK... good to know.
The only "real" problem that I can reproduce consistently, then, appears to be that full-screen doesn't resize or refresh correctly when using a "non-standard" resolution like 2560x1600.

As a follow-up testing on Beta 3:
1) When I first start the VM, all left mouse clicks on the desktop are treated as right mouse clicks
until I actually do a right mouse click.
This behaviour appers to be gone.
2) When I go to full screen mode, the screen is completely black. The problem seems to be a
lack of refresh, as I can click-drag around on the desktop to force a refresh of that part of the
desktop. Opening a window and moving it around will force a refresh of the newly-revealed areas.
3) When I go to full screen mode, the guest OS does not adjust its size.
These two problems still exist except for the following situation. If I
a) update the guest tools and drivers under WinXP, and
b) add the following to the VM's .vmx file:
then switching to full screen (2560x1600) works fine! (Woo hoo!) Specifically, the screen changes resolution and refreshes correctly.
I have not tried this under Linux yet, but older versions of Windows do not appear to work. (I don't know whether this is really a problem.)
4) I see the same banding of otherwise smooth gradients that I see under Linux.
I have updated the VMware tools in the guest OS and rebooted.
\*ahem* This turned out to be "problem between chair and keyboard." \*blush*
