CMD-C goes to a weird, partial/full window mode (MacOSX Mavericks)

This is probably related with ticket 12976

I run all my VMs in full screen mode.

Some times I hit CMD-C by mistake in my Linux (or my Windows) VM. With 4.3.8 and before, this used to bring up a dialog box that asked me to confirm that I wanted to switch to scale mode. I would then just click "cancel" and nothing else happened.

In 4.3.10 here is what happens:

  • I hit CMD-C
  • the window switches to the "weird window mode" described in ticket 12976
  • only AFTER that do I get the box that prompts me to confirm that I want to switch to scale mode
  • since I don't want to switch, I hit cancel.
  • the window then does not switch back to full screen. Instead it stays locked in this "weird window" mode. All view changes (whether using the View menu or using a CMD-x key) are ignored. The only way out is to close the VM (save state) and resume.
  • but if I clicked 'switch' in the dialog box, then I can switch back to full screen using CMD-F.
