3) good visual of tt1-tty6

4) extraneous character vt1/vty6 horizontal and vertical line in virtualbox guest

just install virtualbox from the repo with the lasted 4.1.6 add a ubuntu guest guest install virtualbox guest addition
and press CRrl-F1 you can't see the virtual console

why all this package still in 4.1.2 ? because the latest is 4.1.6?

there are a workaround >
