Shared clipboard trouble. Mac host, Linux guest

Reported by: thaytan Owned by:

Cc: Guest type: Linux
Host type: Mac OS X


I'm using VBox 1.6.0 on an OS/X host, with Ubuntu Hardy as a guest, and guest additions installed.

Shared clipboard works fine, except that the host clipboard contents are always clobbered by the values from the guest -> Copy/paste between host applications always pastes the most recent contents from the guest. Stopping or pausing the VM inhibits the clobbering, and subsequent host to host copy/paste works fine. If I then unpause the VM, host copy/paste continues to work, until something is copied to the clipboard within the VM at which point it resumes the dictatorial control of the clipboard contents.
