Hi, Note this is a resend since my first submission was ignored. This patch
makes virtualbox work much better (things like alt+tab will work in the VM)
when run inside a Wayland session. Can we please get this merged? The
attached patch tackles a long-standing issue when running VirtualBox under
[X]wayland. By default keyboard-grabs are denied to X11 apps under
Xwayland, this causes e.g. alt-tab to not be send to the VM, but to go to
the host window-environment. The attached patch modifies VirtualBox to send
a special ClientMessage which lets mutter knows that VirtualBox works
properly with emulated grabs and that they should be allowed. As usual, the
patch is released under the MIT license.
