ctrl key on OS X is not usable

Reported by: clf Owned by:
Priority: major Component: GUI
Version: VirtualBox 1.6.2 Keywords: ctrl click context menu
Cc: Guest type: other
Host type: Mac OS X


When using an OS X host, the control (ctrl) + mouse press key combination is not recognized correctly. Ctrl + left click results in a right-click, which means that selecting multiple items by ctrl-clicking on files, etc. is not possible. Using ctrl-click as a command (to open links in tabs in a browser, for example) is also affected by this, as ctrl opens a context menu. In many cases this makes typical tasks impossible or frustrating in the guest OS.
