The help window that is brought up when capturing mouse changes focus

Reported by: Devin Jeanpierre Owned by:

On Linux (Slackware 12), if I try to set the mouse to be captured (by clicking on the VM window or pressing ctrl) it brings up a help menu (which I have since disabled to solve the problem). That help window removes focus from the VM window. due to that, if I try to stop the mouse from being captured by the VM, using ctrl, I can't, because it doesn't have focus, and the key presses aren't being sent to VirtualBox. In order to get control of my mouse back, I have to kill VirtualBox from a virtual terminal.

Which window manager are you using?

KDE. I have it set so that focus follows my mouse, if you need that info as well.
