Seamless: focus follows mouse raises all VM windows

Description (last modified by aeichner) (diff)

My virtual machine is XP SP2 Pro. I am using a Nvidia dual monitor card on Ubuntu 7.10. I have it set for focus to follow the mouse.

This means that whenever the desktop or panels are under the mouse, which is probably where the virtual Windows desktop is hidden from view, it brings *all* seamless windows to the front and into focus! Not so good, as this often obscures the application I am actually wanting to move focus TO.

  • Summary changed from seamless mode and focus follows mouse to Seamless: focus follows mouse raises all VM windows

This is a problem of the current implementation (only one guest window which is partly transparent). It will be fixed in a future release.
