Ticket #11289 (closed defect: fixed)
Closing window (and saving state) via keyboard causes abort on resume => Fixed in SVN
|Reported by:||CaptainDave||Owned by:|
If you press the host window manager's close window key, e.g. Alt+F4 in Fluxbox or Windows+x in spectrwm/scrotwm, you are presented with the save state/shutdown/power off dialog as expected. However, if you choose to save the guest state, on restarting the VM, the progress bar goes to the end and then the VM aborts with a failed assertion regarding !VMCPU_FF_ISSET(pVCpu, VMCPU_FF_INTERRUPT_PIC).
Stopping and saving the state of the guest by closing the window with the mouse, with the host key+q combination, or via "vboxmanage controlvm <VM> savestate" from a terminal all resume properly.
If I had to wager a guess as to what's wrong, it's that the guest expects the modifier key in the close combination, e.g. the Alt in Alt+F4, to be depressed when it resumes, as it certainly was when its state was saved, and it can't handle the unexpected condition.
Please note that bug number 8660 is largely repetitive of this, but the original reporter of that one didn't figure out the (or at least "this") cause of the problem. Plus, it's an old report of an old version.
