Gnome menus don't work with a VM in a fullscreen mode

Running a VirtualBox machine on a dual monitor Linux host (one monitor for Gnome/Mate/Cinnamon applications, other to VM in a fullscreen mode) the Gnome menus and popup context menus don't work.

If you leave the fullscreen mode on VM (windowed mode) the gnome menus works fine.

The same behavior occurs with a Ubuntu 11.04 (Gnome 2.32) and Linux Mint 13 (Mate and Cinnamon)

We will take a look at this and try to find a work-around, but it is a long-standing bug in GNOME (which you might consider talking to them about, though I don't know how interested they will be) that menus and window dragging do not work while another application has the keyboard captured.
