Problem installing/configuring VMware Tools in F13 beta guest

Hi,

yesterday I decided to give Fedora another spin and installed F13 beta in a VMware 7.0 VM.

Unfortunately the according "VMware Tools" behave sort of strange. They install with a success message but when config-script gets started after the installation, it does not output anything for about one minute and then tries to restart the whole installation process which then again triggers the configuration-script which after one minute...

The mouse driver works fine but I neither have drag-and-drop support nor does the video driver allow resizing.

Being new to Fedora I'm not sure where to look for troubleshooting. There is no xorg.conf yet in /etc/X11 and here's what my xorg.log looks like:
Code:
