Activation of screensaver blocks system when cursor is caught in VirtualBox => Fixed in 1.5.6

Description

On my Ubuntu 6.10 with VirtualBox 1.3.6, I cannot get "my screen back" if the cursor is caught in VirtualBox (running winxp pro with latest patch level) and my linux "blank screen" screensaver pops in (without the "lock screen" option). Restarting the X-server with ctrl-alt-backspace is the only thing that works. Trying to release the cursor by pressing ctrl-R followed by whatever action usually finishes the screensaver does not work. If I remember to release the cursor from VirtualBox before the screensaver pops in, everthing is fine.

Could you retry with 1.4.0?

I experienced the same problem with versions up to 1.3.8., it does not happen with 1.4.0.

Thanks!

  • Summary changed from Activation of screensaver blocks system when cursor is caught in VirtualBox to Activation of screensaver blocks system when cursor is caught in VirtualBox => Fixed in 1.5.6

This bug was fixed in SVN. We now make sure that we release keyboard and mouse before the screensaver is activated.
