Shared clipboard stops work after taking snapshot => Fixed in SVN

Reported by: ianxxx Owned by:

Host type: Windows

Description

If I take a snapshot on one VM then copy/paste stops to work in any running VM. The only way to make the shared clipboard back to work is to restart any running VM.

This happen with any type of VM OS (Ubuntu 12.04; Windows 7; Windows XP). My host OS is Windows 7 64bit Service Pack 1.

If I remember well, I was with VirtualBox 4.1 with the same host and this problem was not present.

Regars, ian

The problem persist also after a full reinstall of VirtualBox:

  1. uninstalled Extension Pack + VirtualBox
  2. restarted Host
  3. installed VirtualBox + Extension Pack
  4. restarted Host

I can also reproduce the problem. Host Windows 7 SP1 x64, guests: XP, 7 x64, bidirectional clipboard, VirtualBox 4.3.92840
Something interesting: right after saving the snapshot, by copying a small piece of text to the clipboard (from inside the guest, a few letters in Notepad), and pasting it in the host, the host application hangs for a few seconds. I've tried several editors (including a hex editor). After that, trying to close the VM (power off from Close VM window, not ACPI shutdown), hangs VirtualBox. It never completes the shutdown, displaying the "Stopping the virtual machine" progress bar.
