I first noticed this in v5.0.6, but it just happened to me again in 5.0.8. After several days of using a guest, all of a sudden mouse clicks no longer work. Both left and right mouse clicks do nothing, as if the clicks are not making it to the guest. Moving the mouse works. Guest additions are installed.
When the clicks stop working, the mouse continues working correctly in the host and in other guests running on this host.
Rebooting the affected guest fixes the problem.
I looked through the log file, though I see nothing obvious. In this case, the timestamps in the log indicate the guest was only running for 37 hours and 29 minutes. I'd guess the problem started around 37 hours and 27 minutes. I rebooted it a minute or so after it happened.
