5.0.4 Host+D Fails to Insert GA ISO, Reset Shortcut to Default Corrupts Active GUI Shortcut List

Reported by: CM7 Owned by:
Component: guest additions Version: VirtualBox 5.0.2
Keywords: GA, guest additions cd, host key Cc:
Guest type: all Host type: Windows


I've been noticing since 5.0.2 that the Host+D host key combination no longer inserts the guest CD ISO image nor does it cause the installer to start (if inserted using the menu). The equivalent menu operation [Devices; Insert Guest Additions ...] works normally. The same behavior happens on 2 different Win7U 64-Bit(SP1) hosts and all (32-bit) guests I tried:

Host 1: 5.0.2 Guests: WinVistaU SP2, Win10, Linux Mint

Host 2: 5.0.4 Guests: WinXP SP3, Win10, Ubuntu

I've tried 2 different Host key settings: Right Ctrl + Right Shift Right Alt + Right Shift

While checking to document this [File; Preference; Input; Virtual Machine], at first I saw the Insert Guest Additions CD Image ... line showed: Host+D, but clicking Reset Shortcut to Default instead cleared the value completely (didn't restore the default). Click [Ok], then [File; Preference; Input; Virtual Machine] again, and the only Shortcut shown is the the Host Key itself. All other names are gone from the list. Closing the GUI (and waiting for VBoxSvc.exe to end) then restarting the GUI seems to restore the list. Same corruption behavior happens on 5.0.2 and 5.0.4.

Not sure if the host key list corruption is related, but I can't get Host+D to work in any guest. Other Host keys seem to work (Host+F, Host+S, Host+P, Host+Del).
