When using Windows key as shortcut in Ubuntu Linux - Windows menu pops-up

Hi, I am using as host Windows XP SP2 x86 32bit and guest as Ubuntu 7.10 Desktop x86. When using Windows-key shortcut in Ubuntu to launch some application (for example to launch Terminal program) then Windows start-up menu opens. The same problem appears if guest (Ubuntu) is in full screen mode. It is very annoying because I need to interfere with my mouse to click on desktop, to make Windows start-up menu to disappear.

First time this problem appeared in version 1.5.4, but the problem remains in 1.5.6. Before 1.5.4 this was not a problem.

More detailed description I have written on forum:

Hi, today I have installed Ubuntu 8.04 inside of VirtualBox 1.5.6 and problem disappeared. It looks like this is only bug of combination of Ubuntu 7.10 and VirtualBox 1.5.6.

Ok guys I have deleted Ubuntu 7.10 virtual image, so this bug report can be closed. Thanks, Abcuser
