kitty terminal start error inside virtualbox after the recent stable upgrade

After upgrading my manjaro linux inside virtualbox I can't start kitty anymore because of:

X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 72 (X_PutImage)
Serial number of failed request: 358
Current serial number in output stream: 392


BTW: what can I do in order to diagnose the issue further ???
