Cmd + C and Cmd + V freeze VM

Description

I run Windows 7 on a Mac OS X host.

Whenever I accidentally press Cmd + C or Cmd + V inside the VM (because I want to copy and paste something and momentarily forget I'm on Windows), VirtualBox will switch views and bug #10822 will come into play, crashing or freezing the VM.

This is INCREDIBLY annoying.

Please add an option to change the "switch views" hotkeys to some other combination that is less likely to be pressed by accident.

Just configure a different host key in the global VM settings.

Replying to frank:

Just configure a different host key in the global VM settings.

That works, wasn't aware of the option. Thank you!
