I'm running an Arch linux guest on Virtualbox 5.0.6, on an OS X 10.11 host, with the latest guest additions installed. I'm using i3wm as a desktop.

I've added 2 virtual monitors to my VM but can see only one of them when invoking xrandr command. Are the guest additions compatible with RandR or Xinerama?

Here's xrandr's output:

EDIT

Here is an extract from dmesg related to Virtualbox' drivers. I can't see any loading error.

Here is an extract from Xorg.0.log related to screen detection. The three last lines are a bit disturbing but they say to not care...
