It would be great if this combination works in a guest, for example in Visual Studio it stops compilation.

I'm using 3.1.2 r56127 installed from the .deb onto Kubuntu 9.04. I'm running Win7 in the guest with the Guest Extensions enabled.

I'd like to request that you pay renewed attention to this bug. Not passing through the Ctrl-Break combination to the Windows guest means that some programs like MS Access cannot be controlled as expected. In the case of Access, the break command stops execution of a query. Without this command, there is no other option to dealing with a hung or run-away DB query other than closing the entire VM. (Access does not let you close it while a query is being executed.)
